Study Finds Myc Gene Can Boost Efficiency of Myelin-repairing Cells

Increasing the activity of a gene called Myc can make oligodendrocyte precursor cells, or the cells that repair myelin, more efficient — “ground-breaking research” that could have implications for advancing MS treatments, according to a new study by Cambridge researchers. The study, “Myc determines the functional age state of oligodendrocyte progenitor cells,” was published in the journal Nature Aging. Myelin is a fatty substance that is wrapped around nerve fibers and helps them send electrical…
