Novel Protein Identified Inside Cells During MS Inflammation May Help Explain Nerve Damage

This links to another article, with the easy-to-pronounce title, "Endoplasmic Reticulum Plays Role In Multiple Sclerosis Progression".
Scientists have long suspected that mitochondria, the energy-creating “powerhouse” of the cell, play a link in causing multiple sclerosis.

The international team, involving the University of Exeter Medical School and the University of Alberta, was the first to combine clinical and laboratory experiments to explain how mitochondria become defective in people with MS. Using human brain tissue samples , they found that a protein called Rab32 is present in large quantities in the brains of people with MS, but is virtually absent in healthy brain cells.
Ho-ly.

Just fix it already, ok?
Oh, but at this time I've no interest in doing the walk.
