Cleavage Product of Alzheimer's Key Protein APP Stimulates Nerve Cell

A cleavage product of the Alzheimer’s APP protein stimulates nerve cell communication and memory. The protein fragment, known as APPsα, has neuroprotective properties and acts as a signal molecule on other nerve cells. But how does it influence brain functions? An international research team led by Prof. Dr Ulrike Müller weiter …
