Thesis
Hudd, F. Regulation of neurotransmitter synthesis in Alzheimer's disease - Potential for novel disease biomarkers. (Thesis). University of the West of England. Retrieved from https://uwe-repository....ribe.com/output/3566872

Introduction: There currently is an unmet need for new diagnostics to monitor Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and a lack of understanding of the metabolic processes, in particular leucine deprivation on disease and the autophagy pathway. It is thought that... Read More about Regulation of neurotransmitter synthesis in Alzheimer's disease - Potential for novel disease biomarkers.

BCAT-induced autophagy regulates Aβ load through an interdependence of redox state and PKC phosphorylation-implications in Alzheimer's disease (2020)
Journal Article

Leucine, nutrient signal and substrate for the branched chain aminotransferase (BCAT) activates the mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTORC1) and regulates autophagic flux, mechanisms implicated in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative conditions such...
