Environmental Factors Preceding A 𝜷 40 Monomer to Oligomers and the Detection of Oligomers in Alzheimer's Disease Patient Serum

Figure 1

Environmental factors surrounding Aβ40 to precede Aβ40 oligomers. Aβs are exposed to the variety of environmental factors that affect the conformational changes. These factors involve pH shift, temperature, metal ions, sounds, gravity, atmospheric pressure, and vibration. These factors might be responsible to induce soluble Aβ monomer into oligomers which is a component of neurodegenerative process.
