UA group discovers link between neurodegeneration, glycolysis and the insulin signaling pathway

A UA-led research group has identified a link between the insulin-like signaling pathway, which regulates aging, glycolysis, and neurodegeneration caused by protein misfolding. The research was carried out in the laboratories of UA faculty members Guy Caldwell, Kim Caldwell and Janis O’Donnell, and at Harvard University.  The report will appear in the July 1 issue of the journal Cell Metabolism.
