Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia in the elderly. The major pathological features of AD are extracellular amyloid plaques, intracellular neurofibrillary tangles and neuronal loss. Amyloid beta (Aβ) peptide, the main component of the amyloid plaques, has been proposed to...
ABCG1 mediates cholesterol efflux onto lipidated apolipoprotein A-I and plays an important role in macrophage reverse cholesterol transport, thereby preventing atherosclerosis. However, how ABCG1 mediates cholesterol efflux is unclear. We found that Cys514 located within the third putative...
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a complex neurodegenerative disorder believed to be triggered by the accumulation of β-amyloid (Aβ)-related peptides derived from the proteolytic processing of amyloid precursor protein (APP). Research over the last two decades has shown that alterations in the levels...
Niemann-Pick Type C (NPC) disease is an autosomal recessive disorder that results in accumulation of unesterified cholesterol in late endosomes/lysosomes (LE/Ls), leading to progressive neurodegeneration and premature death. Microglia are resident immune cells of the central nervous system, which...
Culture and Characterization of Kefir Organisms to Reproduce the Health Benefits of Traditional KefirDownload
Fermented dairy products such as kefir have long been associated with a host of health benefits; however, the role that microbial composition has in these benefits has not been properly examined. This research aimed to examine how kefir impacts host metabolic health, as well as how alterations...
Cholesterol is well known for its adverse cardiovascular effects, however it has crucial cellular roles. For instance, cholesterol is a key component of eukaryotic cell membranes and constitutes the principle steroid hormone precursor in most animals. Cellular cholesterol concentrations have to...
Effect of Cholesterol Accumulation on the Metabolism of Amyloid Precursor Protein (APP) in Cultured N2a CellsDownload
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder believed to be triggered by the accumulation of β-amyloid (Aβ) peptides derived from the proteolytic processing of amyloid precursor protein (APP). Accumulated evidence has shown that alterations in the levels and/or subcellular...
