Defective cell battery plays central role in neurodegenerative disease



A devastating neurodegenerative disease has been traced to defects in mitochondria, the ‘batteries’ or energy-producing power plants of cells. This finding by a team of researchers, led by investigators from the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital — The Neuro- at McGill University, significantly increases understanding of the disease and reveals an important common link with other neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and Huntington’s, providing renewed hope and potential new therapeutic strategies for those affected around the world.
