Aβ1-15/16 as a Potential Diagnostic Marker in Neurodegenerative Diseases


Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) reflect brain biochemistry. Using combined immunoprecipitation and mass spectrometry, we have shown that amyloid beta 1-15 (Aβ1-15) is produced by concerted β- and α-secretase cleavage of amyloid precursor protein (APP) and that the relative levels of Aβ1-16 in AD compared to controls are… (More)
