Molecular trigger for Alzheimer’s disease identified

Researchers have pinpointed a catalytic trigger for the onset of Alzheimer’s disease - when the fundamental structure of a protein molecule changes to cause a chain reaction that leads to the death of neurons in the brain.

For the first time, scientists at Cambridge’s Department of Chemistry have been able to map in detail… Molecular trigger for Alzheimer’s disease identified
