Beta/A4-evoked degeneration of differentiated SH-SY5Y human neuroblastoma cells.

beta/A4 peptides are known to induce neurodegeneration in cultures of rat brain cells and rat neural cell lines (Yankner et al: Science 250:279-282, 1990; Behl et al: Biochem Biophys Res Commun 186:944-950, 1992). The current data show that these peptides induce similar neurodegeneration in SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma cells, extending characterization of beta/A4… CONTINUE READING
