Enzymatic characterization of cathepsin D in rabbit brains with experimental neurofibrillary changes.

Aluminium salt was injected intracerebrally into rabbits resulting in experimental neurofibrillary change (ENFC) formation as a model of Alzheimer neurofibrillary change. Cathepsin D was purified from the experimental and the control rabbit brains and the enzymatic properties were further investigated. The specific activity of cathepsin D in the tissue… CONTINUE READING
