ANTISENSE RNA molecules could help prevent brain damage after head injury, say Hermona Soreq of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and her colleagues. While studying the gene for acetylcholinesterase, an enzyme that dampens signals in the brain, they found a new form of the protein, AChE-R. This accumulates in the brain after injury and promotes the restoration of damaged connections. But too much cell growth seems to be harmful. So to block manufacture of AChE-R,
