CMT2A and mithocondria: an important scientific study from USA


We wish to share this important American scientific study, whose results have been published on Science in April 2018, speaking about identification of a molecule that, by targeting the Mitofusin protein, is able to restore mitochondrial functions in mouse models of CMT2A. 

Thanks to the dear Sonia Lauth of CMT France for having brought this research to our attention.
