By targeting this mechanism, 25-hydroxyflavone (25OH) compounds, commonly used to treat staph infection, provide a new effective treatment for these mini-techniques.
Rejuvenating drugs for neurodegenerative disorders.
The scientists used a novel method to selectively inhibit a recently discovered protein called GHT5.
In their study, in collaboration with researchers from the US, Belgium and Canada, they succeeded in effectively treating mice with both normal and cryo-activated conditions, in which sensation was gradually blocked by a hyper-excitation signal.
In the absence of peptides in nerve cells, stimulation resulted in more reinstatement of nerve and pain sensation.
“This can lead to new approaches to also extend the safety of neurostimulation of patients”, emphasise the investigators.
