Small Molecule Aids Motor Skills, Breathing in Rett Mouse Model

Use of PTX-BD4-3, a small molecule that activates a protein receptor involved in a pathway that appears to be impaired in Rett syndrome, improved motor and respiratory function in a mouse model of the disease, a study found. These findings support further studies to better characterize PTX-BD4-3, possibly preparing the way for clinical trials in Rett patients, its investigators said. The study, “Restoration of motor learning in a mouse model of Rett syndrome following long-term…
