beta/A4 peptides are known to induce neurodegeneration in cultures of rat brain cells and rat neural cell lines (Yankner et al: Science 250:279-282, 1990; Behl et al: Biochem Biophys Res Commun 186:944-950, 1992). The current data show that these peptides induce similar neurodegeneration in SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma cells, extending characterization of beta/A4(More)
Focal adhesion kinase (FAK) is a non-receptor protein tyrosine kinase that appears to play a central role in integrin-mediated signal transduction in non-neuronal cells, linking the extracellular matrix to the actin-based cytoskeleton at focal adhesion contacts. Biochemical analysis has revealed the presence of FAK immunoreactivity in cells of neuronal(More)
