Center Faculty Publish New Finding on Ezrin Protein’s Link to Tau in Neurodegeneration

Irving Vega, PhD and Scott Counts, PhD of Michigan State University recently published, “Ezrin expression is increased during disease progression in a tauopathy mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease” with Bentham Science Publishers.

Drs. Vega and Counts discovered that increased Ezrin protein abundance is associated with early stages of neurodegeneration in models experiencing a pathological aggregation of tau. Understanding the role of Ezrin in tauopathies, such as Alzheimer’s disease, may provide new insights for targeting tau-mediated neuodegeneration.
