Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) and Alzheimer's disease (AD) belong to a growing family of neurodegenerative disorders that is characterized by the generation of toxic protein aggregates in affected brains (PrPSc and Aβ in TSEs and AD, respectively). To better understand how protein aggregates can modulate microglial processes in these diseases, we treated BV-2 microglia with PrP106-126 or Aβ1-42 peptides individually at three different concentrations (25–100 μM PrP106-12 and 2… CONTINUE READING
