Accumulation of amyloid beta (Abeta) peptide in brain is the hallmark of Alzheimer's disease (AD). The resulting plaques though fibrous in nature may also consist of additional structures currently poorly defined. We hypothesize that plastic composite material contributes to plaque formation. This material is organized by polymers of acrolein, which is an(More)
High levels of acrolein (H2C=HC-CH=O) occur in Alzheimer's brain. Amyloid-beta (Abeta) peptide co-localizes with acrolein presumably due to Abeta-induced lipid peroxidation. Focal production of acrolein may yield a transient elevation in the concentration of acrolein that may be susceptible to polymerization via basic latex polymer chemistry. Following(More)
