In Vitro Effect of H2O2, Some Transition Metals and Hydroxyl Radical Produced Via Fenton and Fenton-Like Reactions, on the Catalytic Activity of AChE and the Hydrolysis of ACh

Abstract

It is well known that the principal biomolecules involved in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) are acetylcholinesterase (AChE), acetylcholine (ACh) and the amyloid beta peptide of 42 amino acid residues (Aβ42). ACh plays an important role in human memory and learning, but it is susceptible to hydrolysis by AChE, while the aggregation of Aβ42 forms oligomers and… (More)
