Probing fibrils from different types of Alzheimer’s
A hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease is the accumulation of amyloid-β fibrils in the brain. It’s still an open question whether structural differences in these fibrils correlate with different subtypes of the disease such as so-called rapid-progression Alzheimer’s.
To help answer that question, Robert Tycko and coworkers at the National Institutes of Health have used brain tissue from patients with one of three forms of Alzheimer’s disease to seed the formation of fibrils . . .
