Correlation between beta-amyloid peptide production and human APP-induced neuronal death.


The production of amyloid peptide (Abeta) from its precursor (APP) plays a key role in Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, the link between Abeta production and neuronal death remains elusive. We studied the biological effects associated with human APP expression and metabolism in rat cortical neurons. Human APP expressed in neurons is processed to produce… (More)
