Insights into the molecular interactions between aminopeptidase and amyloid beta peptide using molecular modeling techniques
Amyloid beta (Aβ) peptides play a central role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease. The accumulation of Aβ peptides in AD brain was caused due to overproduction or insufficient clearance andExpand

Simulated Interactions between Endothelin Converting Enzyme and Aβ Peptide: Insights into Subsite Recognition and Cleavage Mechanism
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a most common form of dementia caused due to aggregation of amyloid beta (Aβ) peptides in brain. The AD brain exhibits extracellular deposition of Aβ-peptides whichExpand
