Molecular clue to Alzheimer's mystery found

Researchers have linked a molecule found in brain cells to levels of presinilin proteins. Mutations in genes coding for presinilins cause Alzheimer's disease, AD. They also found abundance of the molecule, called ubiquilin, in tangles of dead cells of brains with AD and Parkinson's disease.
