  1. 1. Evaluation of amyloid precursor protein and ß-amyloid as biomarkers for Alzheimer s disease

    Författare :Annika Olsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Alzheimer s disease; amyloid precursor protein; ß-amyloid; biomarker; cerebrospinal fluid; enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay; plasma;

    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

  2. 2. Physiological roles of amyloid precursor protein in vivo - zebrafish as a model

    Författare :Jasmine Chebli; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Amyloid-beta precursor protein; amyloid precursor protein-b; zebrafish; physiological functions; development; trigeminal ganglia; ependyma; cilia; proteomics; translational adaptation;

    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

  3. 3. Physiological role of amyloid precursor protein during neural development

    Författare :Rakesh Kumar Banote; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Amyloid precursor protein; Zebrafish; Spinal cord; Motor neurons; Hindbrain; Mauthner cell; Development; Proteomics;

    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. 4. Medin amyloid - a matter close to the heart : Studies on medin amyloid formation and involvement in aortic pathology

    Författare :Annika Larsson; Per Westermark; Sari Kiuru-Enari; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; AA amyloidosis; aging; amyloid; aneurysm; arterial media; dissection; elastin; medin amyloid; lactadherin; thoracic aorta; Pathology; Patologi;

    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

  5. 5. Modeling Amyloid-β Pathology in Alzheimer’s Disease Using the Arctic Mutation

    Författare :Ola Philipson; Lars Nilsson; Lars Lannfelt; Fred van Leuven; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Alzheimer’s disease; Amyloid; Amyloid-β; intraneuronal; transgenic mice; immunohistochemistry; ELISA; Public health medicine research areas; Folkhälsomedicinska forskningsområden; Geriatrics; Geriatrik;

    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.
