When astrocytes become harmful: functional and inflammatory responses that contribute to Alzheimer's disease.

Abstract

A growing body of research suggests that astrocytes play roles as contributors to the pathophysiology of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Several lines of evidence propose that activated astrocytes produce and release proinflammatory molecules that may be critical for the generation of amyloid-β peptide (Aβ). However, accumulating evidence indicates that Aβ may… (More)
