Subcellular Biochemistry

Protein Aggregation and Fibrillogenesis in Cerebral and Systemic Amyloid Disease

Editors: Harris, J. Robin (Ed.)

  • This book is unique in that it contains both Basic Science and Clinical consideration of the amyloid diseases
  • Up-to-date knowledge is presented by authoritative researchers and clinicians
  • The broad range of techniques used to study amyloidogenesis is clear from the topics included in the book
  • Some emphasis appears relating the cytotoxicity of protein oligomers as well as fibrils in the genesis of amyloid disease

About this book

This volume of the Subcellular Biochemistry series is the result of the long-standing research interest of the editor in the molecular mechanism underlying Alzheimer’s disease and other amyloid diseases, indicated also by the earlier book in the series (Volume 38), devoted to Alzheimer’s disease. The broad coverage within the present amyloidogenesis book represents an attempt to collate current knowledge relating to the proteins and peptides involved in most of the known amyloid diseases, together with some amyloid/fibril-forming proteins and peptides that are not involved in diseases. Thus, the range of topics included is comprehensive and furthermore it was thought appropriate to include both basic science and clinical presentation of the subjects under discussion.
