Amyloid-beta (A beta) is the main component of senile plaques, one of the hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease. Our results showed that A beta(25-35) decreased neuronal viability while it increased generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Under these circumstances, albumin (BSA) prevented ROS production and neuronal death in a dose- and time-dependent(More)
Amyloid-β (Aβ), Aβ40, Aβ42, and, recently, Aβ25-35 have been directly implicated in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease. We have studied the effects of Aβ on neuronal death, reactive oxygen species (ROS) production, and synaptic assembling in neurons in primary culture. Aβ25-35, Aβ40, and Aβ42 significantly decreased neuronal viability, although Aβ25-35(More)
