Abstract

Lasagna-Reeves et al. (2016) demonstrate that preventing the kinase Nuak1 from phosphorylating the microtubule-associated protein tau reduces the level of potentially pathogenic tau species in brain, a novel therapeutic strategy that could help counteract Alzheimer's disease and several other neurological disorders.
