Pathological peptide folding in Alzheimer’s disease and other conformational disorders

Current medicinal chemistry

Main neuropathological hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other neurodegenerative disorders are the deposition of neurofibrillary tangles consisting of abnormally phosphorylated protein tau and of senile plaques largely containing insoluble beta-amyloid peptides (A beta), containing up to 43 amino acid residues derived from the beta-amyloid precursor protein. Such A beta-sheets become visible by using suitable histochemical methods. Molecular simulation showed that the central,…
