New Patient-derived Nerve Cell Model Will Aid in Research, Testing

Researchers have developed a patient-derived cell model of aromatic l-amino acid decarboxylase (AADC) deficiency that could provide important insights into the biological underpinnings of the disease, as well as serve as a platform to test potential treatments. The nerve cell model was described in the journal Brain, in a study titled “Aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase deficiency: a patient-derived neuronal model for precision therapies.” The AADC enzyme is needed for the production of certain brain signaling…
