The human brain is.
MOSCOW, 25 Oct — a Group of scientists from the University of California in the US have discovered a drug that can defeat Alzheimer’s. Their study published in the journal Nature Chemistry.
One of the main features of Alzheimer’s disease is the accumulation in the brain of the so-called protein beta-amyloid, which causes cognitive impairment. He makes the kind of plaques and in contact with unique proteins on the surface of brain cells, which leads to massive cell death.
Open scientists the drug prevents the attachment of these platelets to the cells of the brain and thus prevents their death. The researchers were able to find the place of contact of plaques of beta-amyloid proteins by determining three-dimensional structures.
