Heterologous amyloid seeding: revisiting the role of acetylcholinesterase in Alzheimer's disease.
Neurodegenerative diseases associated with abnormal protein folding and ordered aggregation require an initial trigger which may be infectious, inherited, post-inflammatory or idiopathic. Proteolytic cleavage to generate vulnerable precursors, such as amyloid-beta peptide (Abeta) production via beta and gamma secretases in Alzheimer's Disease (AD), is one such trigger, but the proteolytic removal of these fragments is also aetiologically important. The levels of Abeta in the central nervous s...Expand abstract
