Genetic proteins give way to dementia

From a long time, dementia was believed to have a genetic origin. The researches performed at the Mayo Clinic campus in Florida have finally proved that two genetic proteins – Progranulin and Sortilin that perform different kinds of functions in various organs are responsible for the healthier functioning of the brain. When the genes producing the aforementioned genetic proteins are defective, a degraded level of brain functioning can be noticed in the affected people, as these genetic proteins are actually important for aliveness of brain neurons.
