coactivator

co·ac·ti·va·tor

(kō-ak'ti-vā-tŏr),
A type of nuclear proteins that participate in the potentiation of transcription of genes that are responsive to ligand-dependent transcription factors. They belong to several families, including the p160 coactivators and the CBP/p300 molecules.
[co- + activator]

Reverse memory loss associated with Alzheimer's disease (AD): Working with mice modified to develop a form of AD, researchers focused on the protein CRTC1 (CREB-regulated transcription coactivator 1), which is essential to the process of forming associative memories (the ability to recall places, events and people), which are disrupted in people with AD.
