Researchers at IRB Barcelona reveal that the protein NEK7 is relevant for the correct formation of neurons in the hippocampus, a region of the brain associated with memory.
Animals without NEK7 may also have defects in other other brain regions.
A study co-led by IRB Barcelona and IDIBAPS emphasizes the importance of the neuronal mechanisms in the detection of nutrients and the control of glucose levels.
The results published in Cell Metabolism help to understand diabetes in greater detail.
