Amyloid-β (Aβ), the major component of neuritic plaques in Alzheimer's disease (AD), is derived from sequential proteolytic cleavage of amyloid protein precursor (APP) by secretases. In this study, we found that cystatin C (CysC), a natural cysteine protease inhibitor, is able to reduce Aβ40 secretion in human brain microvascular endothelial cells (HBMEC).(More)

When nanoparticles (NPs) are embedded in organic matrices, the materials can show not only combined properties of the original components but also improved performances not seen in the original components. 1 To this end, it is important to control the size, shape, and dispersion of the NPs on a chemically diverse range of supports. However, controlling(More)
