Effect of curcumin-associated and lipid ligand-functionalized nanoliposomes on aggregation of the Alzheimer's Aβ peptide.

Abstract

The effect of various types of nanoliposomes (associated with curcumin, phosphatidic acid, cardiolipin, or GM1 ganglioside) on the aggregation of the amyloid-β(1-42) (Aβ(1-42)) peptide was investigated. Nanoliposomes incorporating curcumin (curcumin-liposomes) were prepared by adding curcumin in the lipid phase during liposome preparation, whereas curcumin… (More)
