Protein Shapes Matter in Alzheimer’s Research

Sometimes proteins misfold. When that happens in the human mind, the pileup of misfolded
proteins can guide to neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and
ALS.

Proteins do not misbehave and misfold out of the blue. There is a delicate ecosystem
of biochemical interactions and environments that usually enable them twist, unfold,
refold and do their work opportunities as they’re intended to.
