Interaction between Aβ Peptide and α Synuclein: Molecular Mechanisms in Overlapping Pathology of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s in Dementia with Lewy Body Disease

Abstract

Amyloidogenic proteins (Aβ peptide) in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and alpha-synuclein (α-Syn) in Parkinson’s disease (PD) are typically soluble monomeric precursors, which undergo remarkable conformational changes and culminate in the form of aggregates in diseased condition. Overlap of clinical and neuropathological features of both AD and PD are observed in… (More)
