DescriptionThe loss of GPR17 is associated with a reduced ability of these precursors to work actively in the regeneration of lost myelin.
LY294002, a small molecular compound, would have the potential to rejuvenate aging oligodendrocyte precursor cells.

DescriptionMyelin is a whitish protective layer made of proteins and fats that surrounds the extensions of our nerve cells, the axons. This layer isolates the nerve tracts and thus helps ensure that the electrical impulses that are passed on from one nerve cell to the next are not weakened. This makes the nerve conduction in our body effective even over long distances.
