Increased Glucose Transport into Neurons Rescues A? Toxicity in Drosophila
Niccoli, T., Cabecinha, M., Tillmann, A., Kerr, F., Wong, C., Cardenes, D., …Partridge, L. (2016). Increased Glucose Transport into Neurons Rescues Aβ Toxicity in Drosophila. Current Biology, 26(17), 2291-2300. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cub.2016.07.017
Glucose hypometabolism is a prominent feature of the brains of patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD). Disease progression is associated with a reduction in glucose transporters in both neurons and endothelial cells of the blood-brain barrier. Howeve...
