Protein misfolding as a risk marker for Alzheimer’s disease – up to 14 years before the diagnosis

17-Oct-2019

In symptom-free individuals, the detection of misfolded amyloid-β protein in the blood indicated a considerably higher risk of Alzheimer's disease – up to 14 years before a clinical diagnosis was made. Amyloid-β folding proved to be superior to other risk markers evaluated, as shown by scientists ...

Alzheimer’s disease: Protective immune response in the brain?

02-Sep-2019

LMU researchers Christian Haass and Michael Ewers have identified a factor that might possibly delay the emergence and slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the Institute for Stroke and Dementia Research (ISD) at ...

Assemblies of proteins relevant not only for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease

23-Aug-2019

Amyloid fibrils play a crucial role in neurodegenerative illnesses. Scientists from Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU) and Forschungszentrum Jülich have now been able to use cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) to decode the spatial structure of the fibrils that are formed from PI3K SH3 ...

Alzheimer’s in mini brains

Verification in a living system

02-May-2019

The causes of the disease are for the most part obscure. Researchers intend to expose them using cerebral organoids grown from stem cells. In the majority of cases, dementia can be traced back to Alzheimer’s disease. Its causes are not really understood yet. What is known is that plaques form ...

Protein complex prevents toxic aggregation of proteins

16-Apr-2019

A protein complex within the cell has been found to play a key role in preventing the toxicity of proteins which build up amyloid plaques and can lead to neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s disease. Researchers from the Universities of Konstanz (Germany), Leeds (UK) ...

How nerve cells control misfolded proteins

28-Mar-2019

Neurodegenerative diseases such as Huntington’s or Parkinson’s disease are associated with misfolded and aggregated proteins. Researchers have discovered a new mechanism used by cells to protect themselves. Researchers have identified a protein complex that marks misfolded proteins, stops them ...

Defective immune cells in the brain cause Alzheimer’s disease

Scientists are studying the role of immune cell activation in Alzheimer's disease

09-Jan-2019

Mutations of the TREM2 gene can significantly increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease. Scientists from the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich now shed light on the reasons why TREM2 is so important for brain health. They show that ...

Protein-folding simulations sped up

08-Dec-2017

Proteins, the ubiquitous workhorses of biochemistry, are huge molecules whose function depends on how they fold into intricate structures. To understand how these molecules work, researchers use computer modeling to calculate how proteins fold. Now, a new algorithm can accelerate those vital ...

Small heat shock protein as model for Alzheimer medication

New field of application for versatile helper

14-Oct-2015

In Alzheimer’s disease proteins clump together to long fibrils causing the death of nerve cells. Small heat shock proteins can counteract this effect. Scientists, therefore, hope to deploy them as agents in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. Using the example of a small heat shock ...
