Scientists Identify Sea Squirt as Model for Alzheimer Disease Research and Drug Testing

San Diego State University researchers have discovered a potentially valuable model for Alzheimer disease (AD) research and drug testing in the form of the sea squirt Ciona intestinalis.

The team reports on their studies with the marine tunicates in a paper titled “Ascidians: an invertebrate chordate model to study Alzheimer’s disease pathogenesis,” which appears in Disease Models & Mechanisms.
