UB researchers corroborate the neuroprotective effects of Sirtuin 1 activation on mice with Alzheimer’s disease

October 7, 2014 - A study coordinated by the University of Barcelona (UB) has described a mechanism that plays a key role in the evolution of Alzheimer’s disease. According to the paper published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, the activation of the protein Sirtuin 1 in a murine model with familial Alzheimer’s disease has neuroprotective effects. The study, based on the PhD thesis developed by the researcher David Porquet (UB), first describes Sirtuin 1 pathway in this murine model. Mercè Pallàs, from the Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutic Chemistry at the Faculty of Pharmacy of UB, coordinates the study. The Bellvitge Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBELL) and the August Pi i Sunyer Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBAPS) also collaborate in the study.
