Gene-network analysis is a valuable new tool for understanding Alzheimer’s disease

Researchers from Osaka University, Niigata University, and the National Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology have found that disruption of protein domain networks that are driven by the RAC1 gene is associated with behavioral and neurological symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. Their findings establish the value of using an integrated network approach to investigate the mechanisms and potential treatments for Alzheimer’s disease.
