Alzheimer's disease (AD) and type 2 diabetes (T2D) are two common protein misfolding diseases. Increasing evidence suggests that these two diseases may be correlated with each other via cross-sequence interactions between β-amyloid peptide (Aβ) associated with AD and human islet amyloid polypeptide (hIAPP) associated with T2D. However, little is known about… CONTINUE READING
