Researchers Reveal New Way to Accelerate, Study Alzheimer’s Protein
Researchers at Osaka University, Japan, have found a new way to speed up the accumulation of amyloid-beta protien in a laboratory setting to better study the aggregation mechanisms in Alzheimer’s disease. Because amyloid-beta aggregation characteristics are thought to be a marker of disease, researchers suggest the new method might be applied to future diagnostic tests. The study of aggregation mechanics of amyloid-beta is crucial to developing drugs intended to target the aggregates. But observing the build-up of protein aggregates in the lab is a slow process. Researchers have long been on the lookout for methods that might accelerate the process. Earlier studies have shown that ultrasonic irradiation increases the aggregation rate of variou
