RNA in Degenerative Diseases, Aging, and Intoxication

  • Henrik A. Hartmann

Abstract

In bringing together information about RNA in degeneration, aging, and intoxication of the nervous system, the predominant thought has been that changes in RNA must be of crucial importance to protein synthesis and other vital functions of the neuron and that, therefore, a lack of the proper type of RNA may be the cause of neurological diseases. Many investigators have established that changes in RNA do take place. One of the difficulties in comparing the results from different laboratories is that they have been obtained with different methods so that the data are not immediately commensurable.
