PURPOSE Resveratrol is a polyphenol present in red wine for which the capability of directly interfering with the hallmark of Alzheimer's disease (AD), i.e. toxic β-amyloid protein (Aβ) aggregation, has been shown recently. Since the stimulation of proteostasis could explain reduced Aβ-aggregation, we searched for proteostasis targets of resveratrol. (More)
SCOPE Dietary polyphenols are suggested to play a role in the prevention of Alzheimer's disease, of which accumulation of aggregated beta amyloid (Aβ) is a key histopathological hallmark. We used the transgenic Caenorhabditis elegans strain CL2006, which expresses human Aβ₁₋₄₂ under control of a muscle-specific promoter and responds to Aβ₁₋₄₂ aggregation(More)
