Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Recent evidence suggests a link between the aberrant re-expression of cell cycle proteins in adult neurons of the Alzheimer's disease brain and the process of apoptotic degeneration. Here we will discuss this unexpected phenomenon as related to the mechanisms of β-amyloid toxicity, and its significance for therapeutic possibilities.
