Tau protein and its role in neurodegenerative diseases.

Researchers at the Gladstone Institutes have shown that reducing brain levels of the protein tau effectively blocks the development of disease in a mouse model of Dravet syndrome, a severe intractable form of childhood epilepsy.

Of all things that contemporary science is capable of observing in the universe, nothing outperforms the human brain or can even be compared to it in terms of functionality, plasticity and efficien…

Recent research has found a vast number of variables determining the role of tau in brain function and dementia including many chemical tags & mutations

Hyperphosphorylation of the tau protein (tau inclusions, pTau) can result in the self-assembly of tangles of paired helical filaments and straight filaments, which are involved in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease, frontotemporal dementia, and other tauopathies.[15]

Study Shows Direct Relationship Between Alzheimer’s Tau Protein and Cholesterol

According to researchers, over-expressing a specific enzyme that can eliminate cholesterol from the brain could have a beneficial effect on the tau protein.

Using a new imaging agent that binds to tau protein and makes it visible in positron emission tomography (PET) scans, scientists have shown that measures of tau are better markers of the cognitive decline characteristic of Alzheimer's than measures of amyloid beta seen in PET scans.

Tau Protein

Introduction to Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) - Alzheimer’s disease is a neurodegenerative disease caused by the buildup in the brain of extracellular plaques (made of a proteinacious material called amyloid) and intracellular tangles (made up of tau protein). These processes lead to destruction of brain cells and, subsequently, to severe dementia (i.e. “decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life”) and associated issues.

David Permutter MD on Marijuana as Alzheimers treatment. scientists find THC reduces beta-amyloid proteins found in the disease, however a flawed treatment proposal, as beta-amyloids are response to brain inflammation, not a result of such.
