Gil Ast and colleagues administered phosphatidylserine to cells derived from familial dysautonomia patients and observed an increase in gene function as well as higher levels of IKAP
. The team then fed the supplement every two days for three months to mice genetically engineered with the mutation that causes the disease in humans.
When the supplement was applied to cells taken from FD patients, the gene function improved and an elevation in the level of IKAP
protein was observed, reports Prof.
Although other cells appear able to make IKAP
protein, only autonomic nerve cells seem affected by the mutation It could be that other cells compensate for the loss or just don't need the protein into thrive, Gusella says.
He went on saying Peugeot picked up 100 out of 200 Iranian auto parts manufacturers and linked them to foreign auto parts manufactures for cooperation within IKAP
Meanwhile the joint venture between Iran Khodro and Peugeots, IKAP
