Welcome to this blog taking a look between the covers of this month’s issue of MedChemComm.
This impressive image featuring on the front cover of the issue highlights the work being done by Kyong-Tai Kim and Sung-Kee Chung et al. Kim, Chung et al. have found a blood–brain barrier permeable derivative of trehalose that can prevent the aggregation of polyQ in transfected cells. This derivative was also found to prolong the lifespan and improve motor functions in a transgenic mouse model.
