Study Detail

TitleReduced sialylation triggers complement c3-mediated neuronal loss in aging mice
Study TypeTranscriptome Analysis
Abstract Mice heterozygous for the bifunctional enzyme glucosamine-2-epimerase/N-acetylmannosamine kinase (GNE+/-), which is essential for sialic acid biosynthesis, showed reduced gne transcription and sialylation in different brain regions. We found synapse loss in the hippocampus of GNE+/- mice at 6 months .. [more]
