Our postdoc 👩‍🔬, Todd Golde & Matilda Katan show that enzyme PLCG2 is found in a type of brain immune cell 🧠 called microglia and a genetic change in this enzyme increases its activity which may protect against developing #Alzheimers 🔬
Biology paper from the group - exciting!
Interesting new study on PLCG2 as a functional hypermorph associated with protection against Alzheimer's disease in microglia by
