Self-Assembly of ß-Amyloid Peptides in Cells and on Solid Supports

Enrico Condemi
Neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and Huntington's disease share common mechanisms characterized by protein misfolding and aggregation, including formation of plaques or inclusion bodies. The rapid growing number of patients has motivated intensive research to understand biological phenomena involved in the pathology and hence developing therapeutic strategies. Here, we will focus on β-amyloid peptide (Aβ) involved in Alzheimer's disease. In the first part of this thesis, tissue transglutaminase (tTGase) has been investigated...
