Understanding Neurodegeneration in Niemann-Pick Disease
Alteration of GABAergic input precedes neurodegeneration of cerebellar Purkinje cells of NPC1-deficient mice
Niemann-Pick (NP) disease is a lysosomal storage disorder that involves the degeneration of certain neurons. A recent study, co-authored by CENTOGENE’s CEO Prof. Arndt Rolfs, investigated this process using an electrophysiological approach. The findings of disturbed synaptic signaling open up novel therapeutic options; they were published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences.
