  1. 1. Electrophoretic focusing in microchannels combined with mass spectrometry : Applications on amyloid beta peptides

    Author : Saara Mikkonen; Åsa Emmer; Johan Jacksén; Tapio Kotiaho; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; amyloid beta; computer simulation; electrophoresis; electrospray ionization; isoelectric focusing; isotachophoresis; MALDI; mass spectrometry; microchannel; microchip; nano-electrospray ionization; preconcentration; separation; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Analysis of low-abundance components in small samples remains a challenge within bioanalytical chemistry, and new techniques for sample pretreatments followed by sensitive and informative detection are required. In this thesis, procedures for preconcentration and separation of proteins and peptides in open microchannels fabricated on silicon microchips are presented. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cellular responses to amyloid-beta protofibrils : Focus on astrocytes, extracellular vesicles and antibody treatment

    Author : Elisabeth Nikitidou; Anna Erlandsson; Martin Ingelsson; Gunnar K. Gouras; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Alzheimer’s disease; Amyloid-beta; Protofibrils; Astrocytes; Extracellular vesicles; Antibody; Neurons; Degradation; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Knowledge about the cellular mechanisms behind the initiation and propagation of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is limited. Decades of research have focused on neuronal abnormalities in AD, but recently more attention has been given to the glial cells. READ MORE

  3. 3. Amyloid Beta – Biotherapy Target and Biotechnological Tool

    Author : Sebastian W. Meister; Stefan Ståhl; John Löfblom; Maarten Merkx; KTH; []
    Keywords : Alzheimer’s disease; amyloid beta; blood-brain barrier; green-fluorescent protein; intracellular assays; proteases; protease substrate specificity; protein aggregation; protein engineering.; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disease characterized primarily by memory impairment and cognitive decline. As of 2020, an estimated 50 million people suffer from Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia and no disease-modifying treatment options are yet approved for clinical practice. READ MORE

  4. 4. NMR studies of the amyloid beta-peptide

    Author : Jens Danielsson; Astrid Gräslund; Chris Dobson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NMR; amyloid beta peptide; structure; metal interaction; diffusion; Biophysics; Biofysik;

    Abstract : The Amyloid beta peptide (Ab) is related to Alzheimer’s disease and is suggested to be the molecular pathogenic species of the disease, probably through the neurotoxic effect of Ab oligomers. Here the results from biophysical studies of Ab and fragments thereof, are presented. READ MORE

  5. 5. Revealing the complex nature of amyloid beta and its relation to dementia

    Author : Eleni Gkanatsiou; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Alzheimer s Disease; Amyloid beta; Mass spectrometry; Cerebral amyloid angiopathy; Down Syndrome; Pathological ageing; Dementia with Lewy bodies; Parkinson s disease dementia; dementia;

    Abstract : Alzheimer disease (AD) is the most common type of dementia and characterized by the accumulation of amyloid plaques in the extracellular space of the brain parenchyma. Amyloid plaques consist of amyloid beta peptides (Aβ). Amyloid pathology can also be involved in other types of dementia, either as a driving force or as a coexisting pathology. READ MORE
