Sammanfattning : Alzheimer s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterised by accumulations of neurofibrillary tangles and amyloid plaques. The major components of the amyloid deposits are the ß-amyloid (Aß) peptides derived from the amyloid precursor protein (APP). LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Amyloid-beta precursor protein (APP) is an evolutionarily conserved transmembrane protein expressed in many different tissues. APP belongs to a gene family consisting of two other APP-like proteins (APLP1 and APLP2). LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Amyloid precursor protein (APP) is a type-one membrane-spanning protein with a large extracellular N-terminal domain and a small intracellular C-terminal domain. APP first gained interest due to its involvement in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). LÄS MER
4. Medin amyloid - a matter close to the heart : Studies on medin amyloid formation and involvement in aortic pathology
Sammanfattning : Amyloidoses are a group of protein misfolding diseases characterized by deposits of insoluble fibrillar protein aggregates. Medin amyloid, which is the focus of this thesis, appears in the media of the thoracic aorta in nearly all individuals over 50 years. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The Arctic mutation in the Amyloid-β (Aβ) domain of the Amyloid-β precursor protein (APP) causes Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and confers unique biochemical characteristics to Aβ peptides. The aims of this thesis were to evaluate a transgenic model with the Arctic mutation, and to use it to gain new insights into the mechanisms of early (pre-plaque) and late-stage Aβ pathogenesis in AD.
