Protein that could help defeat Alzheimer’s and increase productive lifespan

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia, a disorder of progressively worsening memory and other thinking abilities.
ABCA7 is a gene that encodes a protein involved in cellular lipid transport, particularly the transport of lipids like cholesterol.
Cholesterol is a crucial component of cell membranes and plays various roles in the body, including in the brain.
Inflammation, on the other hand, is the body’s response to harmful stimuli and can be associated with various diseases, including those affecting the brain.
ABCA7, cholesterol, and inflammation are interconnected in the context of human brain cells, and disruptions in this interplay may contribute to various neurological conditions.
