Activin to the rescue for overexcited neurons

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Overactivation of receptors for the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate may be involved in disorders ranging from epilepsy to Alzheimer disease. This destructive pathway may be held in check by basic fibroblast growth factor acting through an intermediary cytokine called activin A (pages 812-815).
