Molecular Biology of Neurodegenerative Diseases
The Progressive degeneration or decline of nerve cells that leads to problems associated with movement and mental functioning are known as Neurodegenerative diseases. Examples include, Alzheimer’s , Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease. Molecular studies of gene brings a significant advancement in identification of monogenetic cause for the illness , determining the chromosomal localization of the gene, cloning the gene and testing on transgenic animals and studying the biochemistry of protein and cell biology for understanding the function of pathogenesis to develop therapy against pathogens.
