Temporary salt crystals may provide a permanent solution to Alzheimer’s

Osaka University researchers show that salt crystals can precipitate at low concentrations owing to local density fluctuation and their repeated precipitation-dissolution behavior promotes aggregation of Amyloid-β peptides implicated in Alzheimer’s disease

Researchers at Osaka University have demonstrated that precipitation of a salt crystal occurs even at concentrations much lower than its solubility du...
