A second pathway through which Alzheimer’s develops has been discovered after researchers identified a new set of genetic markers for the disease. Most Alzheimer’s genetic research focuses on amyloid-beta, which contributes to the formation of plaques found in the brains of people suffering from Alzheimer’s. In this study, published in the journal Neuron, researchers were able to identify genes linked to the tau protein, a protein which develops in the brain as Alzheimer’s slowly progresses.
