Amyloid precursor accumulation and Alzheimer’s disease: new hypotheses and therapeutic strategies against this “dangerous relationship”

Amyloid precursor protein seems to be overexpressed in patient with Alzheimer disease. An alteration of the mechanism of the synthesis control of this protein could be one of the causes for the toxicity of neurons. Acting upstream to the wrong proteolytic cleavage it may be possible to find a therapy to cure this disease.
