Abstract
The incidence of amyloid plaques, composed mainly of beta-amyloid peptides (Abeta), does not correlate well with the severity of neurodegeneration in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD). The effects of Abeta(42) on neurons or neural stem cells (NSCs) in terms of the aggregated form remain controversial. We prepared three forms of oligomeric, fibrillar, and monomeric Abeta(42) peptides and investigated their effects on the proliferation and neural differentiation of adult NSCs, according to the degree of aggregation or concentration. A low micromolar concentration (1 micromol/L) of oligomeric Abeta(42) increased the proliferation of adult NSCs remarkably in a neurosphere assay. It also enhanced the neuronal differentiation of adult NSCs and their ability to migrate. These results provide us with valuable information regarding the effects of Abeta(42) on NSCs in the brains of patients with AD.
