Deficits in mitochondrial function are a characteristic finding in Alzheimer's disease (AD), though the mechanism remains to be clarified. Recent studies revealed that amyloid β peptide (Aβ) gains access into mitochondrial matrix, which was much more pronounced in both AD brain and transgenic mutant APP mice than in normal controls. Aβ progressively accumulates in mitochondria and mediates mitochondrial toxicity. Interaction of mitochondrial Aβ with mitochondrial enzymes such as amyloid… Expand
