Washington: Quickly clearing out defective proteins in the brain may prevent loss of brain cells, a new study has suggested.Results suggest that the speed at which damaged proteins are cleared from neurons may affect cell survival and may explain why some cells are targeted for death in neurodegenerative disorders. One of the mysteries surrounding neurodegenerative diseases is why some nerve cells are marked for destruction whereas their neighbours are spared. In Huntington`s disease and many other neurodegenerative disorders, proteins that are misfolded (have abnormal shapes), accumulate inside and around neurons and are thought to damage and kill nearby brain cells.
