  1. 1. Potential Neurophysiological Biomarkers for the Diagnosis of Age-related Neurodegenerative Diseases

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Author : Veronika Marková; [2020]
    Keywords : dementia; Alzheimer’s disease; frontotemporal dementia; TMSevoked potentials; motor-evoked potentials; mild cognitive impairment; aging; diagnosis;

    Abstract : The global population with dementia is rapidly increasing around the world.The major risk factor for dementia is aging. There is currently no treatmentavailable and the cost of symptomatic treatment is high. READ MORE

  2. 2. Characterization of the fusion protein mNG-Aβ1-42 as a fluorescence reporter probe for amyloid structure

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för fysik, kemi och biologi

    Author : Linnéa Fredén; [2020]
    Keywords : Alzheimer’s Disease AD ; Amyloids; ; fusion protein; mNeonGreen; mNG-Aβ1-42; Crystallization; mouse brain tissue; human brain tissue; amyloid fluorescent probes;

    Abstract : Alzheimer’s Disease, also called AD, is a horrible, degenerative brain disease that more than 35 million people over the world have. Today, there is no cure for this disease, only treatments that are temporarily relieving the symptoms. The two proteins that is thought to be the main cause of AD is amyloid β (Aβ) and tau.

  3. 3. Bacterial Display of a Tau-Binding Affibody Construct:Towards Affinity Maturation

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Moira Ek; [2020]
    Keywords : Microtubule-associated protein tau; Neurodegenerative disorders; Alzheimer’s disease; Affibody molecules; Affinity maturation; Staphylococcal surface display; Escherichia coli display; Flow cytometry; Cell sorting;

    Abstract : Aggregation of microtubule-associated protein tau is involved in the pathology of several neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease. The affibody TP4 has been shown to inhibit this aggregation process, and its target-binding positions were previously grafted onto a dimeric affibody scaffold, creating the sequestrin seqTP4.

  4. 4. Development of Sandwich Assays for Potential Protein Biomarkers in Neurodegenerative Diseases

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Jamil Yousef; [2020]
    Keywords : Biomarkers; cerebrospinal fluid; neurodegenerative diseases; neuroproteomics; sandwich assay; suspension bead array.; Biomarkörer; ryggmärgsvätska; neurodegenerativa sjukdomar; neuroproteomik; sandwich assay; suspension bead array.;

    Abstract : As the aging population is increasing worldwide, so is the prevalence of neurodegenerativediseases such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD), Parkinson’s disease (PD), frontotemporal dementia(FTD) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Reliable biomarkers able to aid the diagnosis anddifferentiation of these diseases are needed in order to start the right treatment as early as possible. READ MORE

  5. 5. A method for unbiased analysis of fluorescence microscope images of Alzheimer’s disease related amyloids

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för fysik, kemi och biologi

    Author : Samuel Haglund; [2020]
    Keywords : Amyloid beta; Luminocent conjugated oligothiophene; Hyperspectral image analysis; Alzheimers disease;

    Abstract : Alzheimer's disease is a widespread disease that has devastating effects on the human brain and mind. Ultimately, it leads to death and there are currently no treatment methods available that can stop the disease progression. READ MORE
