Our CSO explores a theory he has about the amino acid arginine which seems to be showing frequent association with pathogenicity.
Neurotoxin exposure is implicated in the etiology of neurodegenerative diseases including Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). Traditionally, vertebrate animals such as rodents and fish have been used for experimental work in neurotoxicology. However, researchers are increasingly turning to invertebrates such as the nematode, C. elegans, for a variety of compelling reasons
