Novel neurodegenerative disease and gene identified with the help of ‘man’s best friend’

A breakthrough study performed with veterinary neurologists and neuropathologists has identified a gene mutation that causes a novel type of neurodegenerative disease in dogs. The results of the study shed light into the function of neurons, provide a new gene for human neurodegenration, and may aid in developing better treatments for neurodegenerative disorders.
