New therapeutic target for Alzheimer’s could lead to drugs without side effects

Alzheimer’s disease is caused by a build-up of a small protein called beta-amyloid, which is formed when a larger protein is broken into pieces. But the enzyme that produces beta-amyloid is also responsible for cleavage of another protein called Notch. Continue reading
