Erbin, Lano, Scribble, and Densin-180 belong to LAP (leucine-rich repeats and PDZ domain) adaptor proteins involved in cell signaling pathways. Previously, we identified Erbin, Lano, and Scribble, but not Densin-180, in muscle cells, where they are involved in regulating the aggregation of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors in vitro. Here, we analyzed their… (More)

Hall mark in Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is the aggregation of amyloid-b (Ab) peptide into oligomers and fibrils. Nowadays, the soluble oligomers are believed to be the most neurotoxic species, probably the causative agents in AD. Amyloid-beta fibrils on the other hand may serve as reservoirs for small toxic oligomers. While it is well known from experiment,… (More)
