The investigation led them to PHLLP, in addition to being involved in normal known known to drive drive.. The next step was to find out what the off AKT in the vulnerable cells, the scientists led PHLPP1, a recently discovered enzyme that a natural a natural tumor suppressor. Where PHLPP1 levels were high – which corresponded to the area with the lowest cell population – AKT activation was far less robust. – We may have a goal that could be manipulated with drugs these these brain cells can be saved from threats found, said Foster, a professor of neuroscience at UF ‘s College of Medicine. If an area of the hippocampus has a deficiency in cell-survival signaling, it is possible find a way to ramp up the AKT protein The downside is there are studies that can activating activating AKT to be good for the show memory – AKT can naturally lower in this region is an important reason, but in times intense damage, there may be a therapeutic window regulate AKT and get some benefit for your health.
