Scientists Discover Enzyme Needed for Activating Myelin Repair

The enzyme TET1, which is progressively lost with age, is essential to activate genes needed to repair myelin — the sheath around nerve cells that is damaged in people with multiple sclerosis (MS) — a study in mice has found. The scientists said their discovery supports further research to find ways to reverse TET1 decline, repair myelin damage, and slow MS progression.  “Our findings suggest that TET1 is required for adult myelin repair,” the team…
