Axon Degeneration: Too Much NMN Is Actually Bad?

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review

3 Scopus citations


The mechanism of axon degeneration is incompletely understood. A recent study demonstrates that transgenic expression of bacterial nicotinamide adenine mononucleotide (NMN) in zebrafish and mice, which decreases NMN levels by converting it to NaMN, protects against axon degeneration.
