ANK1 Expression Change May Cause Neuroinflammation
Expression of the protein ANK1 (ankyrin repeat domain-containing protein) is four fold higher in the microglia of patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Microglia are a type of immune cell found in the brain and key regulators of the inflammatory cascade typified in early Alzheimer’s development.
