Amyloid Precursor Protein in Central and Peripheral Cholinergic Synaptopathies
(Nova Science Publishers, 2011-05)
Alzheimer´s disease is the most widespread form of dementia in the elderly. One of the characteristics of this disease is the profound functional deficit of the cholinergic system as a consequence of synaptic loss. Amyloid ...
Imaging amyloid precursor protein in vivo: An axonal transport assay
(Humana Press, 2012-08)
Fusion of fluorescent probes to axonally transported proteins represents an established approach that enables live imaging of axonal transport. In this approach, in vivo examination of fluorescent particle dynamics provides ...
APP signaling in Alzheimer's disease
(Impact Journals, 2018-11)
A large body of evidence supports the Amyloid β (Aβ) cascade hypothesis underlying neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Although the mechanism by which Aβ induces neuronal dysfunction and death is still matter ...
Characterization of the beta amyloid precursor protein-like gene in the central nervous system of the crab Chasmagnathus. Expression during memory consolidation
(BioMed Central, 2010-09)
Background: Human β-amyloid, the main component in the neuritic plaques found in patients with Alzheimer's disease, is generated by cleavage of the β-amyloid precursor protein. Beyond the role in pathology, members of this ...
