PRESS RELEASE – ESRF the European Synchrotron

New insights into what happens in cells in early Alzheimer’s

Researchers led by the ESRF, the European Synchrotron, have found that amyloid oligomers play a role in speeding up mitochondrial energetics during the early stages of Alzheimer’s, in contrast to what has been previously found in more advanced Alzheimer’s brain tissues. The results are published in Nature Communications.
