Albumin protects human red blood cells against Abeta25-35-induced lysis more effectively than ApoE.

Inhibition of the lysis of human red blood cells (RBCs) exposed to amyloid peptide Abeta25-35 is an model for screening natural and synthetic substances potentially protective against amyloid damage. In this system, human serum and a component, namely apolipoprotein E (apoE), completely prevent RBC lysis. This report demonstrates that albumin, another serum… CONTINUE READING
