Elevated TREM2 Gene Dosage Reprograms Microglia. Variants of TREM2 are associated with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). To study whether increasing TREM2 gene dosage could modify the disease pathogenesis, we developed BAC transgenic mice expressing human TREM2 (BAC-TREM2) in microglia.

Gene Therapy for PD Parkinson's Disease Clinic and. Gene therapy for Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson's disease is characterized by loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra. The loss of these neurons results in a change in the balance of expiratory and inhibitory pathways in the brain, and these pathways in turn affect movement control.

Learning About Progeria - National Human Genome Research. What do we know about heredity and progeria? Progeria is an extremely rare genetic disease of childhood characterized by dramatic, premature aging. The condition, which derives its name from 'geras,' the Greek word for old age, is estimated to affect one in 4 million newborns worldwide. The most
