Alzheimer's Disease: Methods and Protocols (Methods in by N. M. Hooper

By N. M. Hooper

A panel of hugely expert investigators describe intimately their cutting-edge biochemical, cellphone organic, and molecular organic concepts for learning the molecular foundation of Alzheimer's illness. those simply reproducible, step by step equipment specialise in paintings with the amyloid precursor protein and the amyloidogenic peptide A?, but additionally include-with the hot id of presenilin proteins-techniques for identifying the constitution and organic functionality of those proteins. furthermore, there are chapters protecting the tau protein and its function in Alzheimer's disorder, in addition to an introductory dialogue of the heritage of the sickness, its genetic foundation, and the presently to be had and attainable destiny healing brokers. state of the art and huge ranging, Alzheimer's affliction: equipment and Protocols offers prepared entry to confirmed, reproducible equipment for elucidating the molecular foundation of this commonest senile dementia.
