Targeted hydrolysis of Beta-amyloid with engineered antibody fragment.

Accumulation and deposition of beta amyloid (Abeta) play a critical role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's Disease (AD), and numerous approaches to control Abeta aggregation are being actively pursued. Brain Abeta levels are controlled by the action of several proteolytic enzymes such as neprilysin (NEP), insulin degrading enzyme (IDE) and plasmin. While… CONTINUE READING
