Gut Bacteria May Play a Role in Multiple Sclerosis

Posted by

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a neurodegenerative autoimmune disorder, that occurs when the immune system attacks the myelin around nerve cells. Two different recent studies may have found a link between the microbial biome in the gut and the progression of MS. The studies, conducted by University of California San Diego and the Max Planck Institute in Germany, found differences in the gut bacteria of patients with MS and patients without. These different strains triggered cells to be pro-inflammatory. Learn More Here.

Biomarker Spotlight: Zonulin

The zonulin biomarker is a pre-haptoglobin (pre-HP2) protein found in the gut. It is responsible for the permeability of the mucosal barrier of the intestines. When zonulin binds to the epithelial cells of the intestines a signal cascade is induced. This cascade disassembles the paracellular tight junctions of the intestinal wall. The tight junctions of the [...]

Scientists Uncover the Atomic Structure of Key Alzheimer's Protein
