  1. 1. Cellular Uptake of Amyloid Forming Proteins Related to Neurodegenerative Disease

    Author : Emelie Vilhelmsson Wesén; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Alzheimer’s disease; Aβ 1-40 ; Aβ 1-42 ; amyloid fibril; confocal microscopy; α-synuclein; flow cytometry; fluorescence; SH-SY5Y; amyloid-β;

    Abstract : Aggregation and deposition of disease-associated protein is a pathological hallmark of several human disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and Parkinson’s disease (PD). These diseases are characterized by the formation of amyloid-β (Aβ) and α-synuclein (α-syn) amyloid fibrils, in extracellular and intracellular locations, respectively. READ MORE

  2. 2. NMR studies on interactions between the amyloid β peptide and selected molecules

    Abstract : Alzheimer’s disease is an incurable neurodegenerative disorder linked to the amyloid β (Aβ) peptide, a 38-43 residue peptide. The detailed molecular disease mechanism(s) is (are) unknown, but oligomeric Aβ structures are proposed to be involved. READ MORE

  3. 3. Spectroscopic studies of dynorphin neuropeptides and the amyloid beta-peptide : The consequences of biomembrane interactions

    Author : Loïc Hugonin; Astrid Gräslund; Bernard Lebleu; Stockholms universitet; []
