The neuronal S100B protein is a calcium-tuned suppressor of amyloid-β aggregation

2018-07-16T12:29:03+00:00 July 9th, 2018|

Amyloid-β (Aβ) aggregation and neuroinflammation are consistent features in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and strong candidates for the initiation of neurodegeneration. S100B is one of the most abundant proinflammatory proteins that is chronically up-regulated in AD and is found associated with senile plaques. This recognized biomarker for brain distress may, thus, play roles in amyloid aggregation [...]
