Oxidative stress has been implicated in the pathogenesis of many neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer's disease (AD). We investigated the effect of a truncated form of the human tau protein in the neurons of transgenic rats. Using electron paramagnetic resonance we observed significantly increased accumulation of ascorbyl free radicals in brains(More)
We have previously shown that human misfolded tau proteins strongly perturb mitochondrial transport and induce accumulation of free radicals in neurons. This interference is underlying cause of increased susceptibility to oxidative stress and could be linked to excitotoxic pathways. In order to understand integral mechanisms of misfolded tau driven(More)
