Dragnet for epilepsy genes

An international team of scientists together with the University of Bonn Hospital have taken a new path in the research into causes of epilepsy: The researchers determined the networks of the active genes and, like a dragnet, looked for the ‘main perpetrators’ using a computer model. In doing so, they discovered the molecule sestrin-3 as a central switch. In animal models, the inhibition of sestrin-3 leads to a reduction in seizures. —> Read More Here
