Potent anti-angiogenic motifs within the Alzheimer beta-amyloid peptide

A study entitled “Potent anti-angiogenic motifs within the Alzheimer’s β-amyloid peptide” was published in the January 2008 issue of the journal Amyloid. Building on previous work showing that the Alzheimer’s Aβ peptide is able to prevent blood vessel growth and inhibit tumor growth, Roskamp Institute scientists investigated particular sequences within the Alzheimer’s Aβ peptide in […]
