Abstract: Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is characterized by cognitive impairment due to the loss of structure and/or function of neurons, and amyloid plaques composed of aggregated-amyloid beta (Aβ) peptides, primarily species ending at the amino acid 42 (Aβ42), are one of the major neuropathological hallmarks of AD. Aβ peptides of different lengths are produced by sequential cleavage of amyloid beta precursor protein (APP) by α-, β- and γ- secretases. Aβ peptides are often considered “toxic”, but they are als... more
