The mechanisms leading to AD are not completely understood; however, recent evidence suggests that alterations in Fyn, a Src family kinase, might contribute to AD pathogenesis. A number of studies have demonstrated that Fyn is involved in synaptic plasticity, a cellular mechanism for learning and memory. In addition, Fyn plays a role in the regulation of Aβ productio… Show more
