The amyloid beta dimer/trimer : a potent stimulator of neuronal amyloid beta secretion and cofilin-actin rod formation
MetadataShow full item record
Amyloid beta (Aβ) peptides, a heterogeneous mixture of 39-43 amino acid peptides produced from β- and γ-secretase cleavage of the amyloid precursor protein (APP), are one of the causative agents of Alzheimer disease (AD). Although sensitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) for specific rodent Aβ peptides and for total and specific human Aβ peptides have been commercially available, no commercial assay for total rodent Aβ was available when we began these studies. Such an assay is desirable to determine the effects of the human Aβ peptides on production of Aβ from cultured rodent ...
