Alzheimer's Disease: Insights into Low Molecular Weight and by Philippe Derreumaux

By Philippe Derreumaux

Alzheimer's disorder is the most typical type of senile dementia, affecting greater than 24 million humans world wide. it truly is characterized pathologically by way of abnormally excessive degrees of neurofibrillary tangles due to the buildup of tau protein in lifeless and loss of life neurons, and via increased numbers of senile plaques within the cortex and hippocampus of the mind. the foremost portion of senile plaques is a small protein of 39–43 amino acids referred to as amyloid-β (Aβ). up to now, no remedy has been proven to gradual the development of sporadic and familial Alzheimer's disease.

A huge physique of proof issues, besides the fact that, to the early Aβ-formed oligomers because the basic poisonous species in Alzheimer's affliction. a robust method for constructing pharmaceutical remedies opposed to Alzheimer's is to explain the pathways of oligomer formation and confirm the constructions of the poisonous aggregates.

This booklet presents a breathtaking view throughout fresh in vitro and in vivo stories in addition to cutting-edge computing device simulations, designed to extend the readers' figuring out of Aβ oligomerisation and fibril formation. whilst, the e-book delves into the pathogenesis of familial and sporadic Alzheimer's ailment on the atomic point of detail.

Written via best authors of their respective fields, this booklet could be worthwhile to all scientists engaged on Alzheimer's disease.

Readership: normal public, PhD scholars, postdocs, in addition to all scientists operating within the following fields: Alzheimer's disorder, amyloids, neuroscience, oligomers, protofibrils, fibrils, toxicity, buildings, dynamics, kinetics, thermodynamics, all-atom and coarse grained simulations, biophysics, reminiscence, studying, transgenic mouse types, steel ions, membrane, nanoparticles, computational chemistry, drug layout and bioinformatics.
