Amyloid  Prions  and Other Protein Aggregates

This volume includes a core of methodologies to attack the unique experimental problems presented by protein misassembly. Emphasis is on human biology applications, the area in which there is the most interest, in which most of the work has already been done, and in which there is the best evidence for the structural sophisitication of the protein aggregates. The critically acclaimed laboratory standard for more than forty years, Methods in Enzymology is one of the most highly respected publications in the field of biochemistry. Since 1955, each volume has been eagerly awaited, frequently consulted, and praised by researchers and reviewers alike. Now with more than 300 volumes (all of them still in print), the series contains much material still relevant today--truly an essential publication for researchers in all fields of life sciences.

Amyloid Fibrils and Prefibrillar Aggregates

Summing up almost a decade of biomedical research, this topical and eagerly awaited handbook is the first reference on the topic to incorporate recent breakthroughs in amyloid research. The first part covers the structural biology of amyloid fibrils and pre-fibrillar assemblies, including a description of current models for amyloid formation. The second part looks at the diagnosis and biomedical study of amyloid in humans and in animal models, while the final section discusses pharmacological approaches to manipulating amyloid and also looks at its physiological roles in lower and higher organisms. For Biochemists, Molecular Biologists, Neurobiologists, Neurophysiologists and those working in the Pharmaceutical Industry.

Protein Misfolding  Aggregation and Conformational Diseases

Research indicates that most neurodegenerative diseases, systemic amyloidoses and many others, arise from the misfolding and aggregation of an underlying protein. This is the first book to discuss significant achievements in protein structure-function relationships in biochemistry, molecular biology and molecular medicine. The authors summarize recent progress in the understanding of the relationships between protein misfolding, aggregation and development of protein deposition disorders.

Alzheimer s Disease

Alzheimer's Disease is an ever-present problem affecting millions of people around the world and, as people's average lifespan lengthens, its prevalence is set to increase. A global effort is needed to combat the disease, including research to investigate the causes, development of effective treatments and, ultimately, prevention of the disease. Published every two years, these timely books discuss the very latest research. This new volume in the series: Provides a uniques source of reference to the important work being done in this field Gives academics and clinicians an opportunity to learn about cutting edge developments Covers all aspects of Alzheimer's Disease, including diagnosis, clinical course, epidemiological course and therapeutics and disease mechanisms. Alzheimer's Disease: Advances in Etiology, Pathogenesis and Therapeutics and Therapeutics will provide essential information for basic and clinical researchers in Alzheimer's Disease and other dementias as well as for those who care for patients.

The Dynamic Nature of Amyloid beta Protein Aggregation and Its Association to Alzheimer s Disease

The Dynamic Nature of Amyloid beta Protein Aggregation and Its Association to Alzheimer s Disease

La proteïna beta amiloide (Aß) es troba estretament lligada a la malaltia d'Alzheimer (MA). Tot i el seu rol central en la malaltia, Aß es produeix de forma regular en humans sans. És el processament aberrant de la proteïna que en determina la seva acumulació i agregació, primer en intermedis oligomèrics transitoris que evolucionen cap a les estructures fibril·lars que composen les plaques amiloides dipositades al cervell dels malalts de la MA. La neurotoxicitat associada a la malaltia s'atribueix a les espècies intermèdies, per bé que se'n desconeix l'estequiometria i l'estructura. En la present tesi doctoral, hem determinat l'estequiometria i l'estructura dels oligòmers d'Aß formats en els estadiatges inicials de l'agregació. Hem provat que aquests oligòmers mostren neurotoxicitat en cultius neuronals primaris. Addicionalment, hem demostrat que el clàssic anàlisi per electroforesi en gel proporciona resultats confusos a l'hora de determinar l'estequiometria dels oligòmers. Els resultats presentats en la tesi doctoral també mostren evidències de que les fibres amiloides d'Aß es troben en equilibri amb monòmers i oligòmers de baix pes molecular. Aquest equilibri ha demostrat ser dependent de les propietats fisicoquímiques de les pròpies fibres d'Aß.
