The true number of researchers and study topics involved depends on the topics chosen, Gutierrez said. Chemical analysis of the insoluble deposits reveals they are produced up of a grouped category of short protein fragments, known as beta-amyloid peptides, which derive from a precursor proteins known as APP by the sequential actions of two enzymes. A global team of experts led by Christian Haass and Dr. Michael Willem has produced a discovery which extends this picture of the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease, and has potentially far-reaching implications for our knowledge of the problem: Another setting of APP cleavage exists, that involves a unknown cleavage and generates an alternative solution peptide previously, says Christian Haass.Licensed from medwireNews with authorization from Springer Health care Ltd.
