Derived Exosomal Protein Biomarkers in Alzheimer’s Disease Diagnosis

Alzheimer’s disease results in brain neuronal plaques composed of amyloid beta peptide (Aβ42) and neurofibrillary tangles composed of phosphorylated tau proteins (P-T181-tau and P-S396-tau). Exosomes are shed by brain neurons, freely cross the blood brain barrier and protect and carry proteins from their cellular origin into plasma. More...
