Blocking JNK Signaling Pathway May Be Useful for Treating Rett

A cellular signaling pathway called the JNK pathway is overactive in cell and animal models of Rett syndrome, and blocking it lessens signs of the disease in these models, according to a new study. “These results suggest that JNK inhibition could offer an attractive therapeutic strategy to tackle RTT [Rett syndrome],” the researchers concluded. The study, “JNK signaling provides a novel therapeutic target for Rett syndrome,” was published in the journal BMC Biology. The JNK…
