Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a prevalent age-related neurodegenerative disorder affecting millions of people worldwide. Little is known about the early molecular changes that initiate plaque and tangle formation. Learn how Salivary Proteomics is used to detect biomarkers for early Dementia conversion.
Understanding what causes a stem cell to enter the cell cycle, and what happens when it does, is key to determining how we can maximise the therapeutic potential of these cells to repair injured tissues or treat diseases. Here, Zeng et al., use LC-MS/MS to study the activation of a particular type of stem cell, Satellite cells (SC), that have the potential to repair damaged skeletal muscle.
