Therefore, it can be concluded that GSK-3b may act as a downstream protein of CDK5 in the signaling pathways for AD occurrence, and the association of HIg with Ab inhibits the cleavage of P35 to P25 and disrupts the activities of both CDK5 and GSK-3b, thus decreasing the occurrence of neurofibrillar tangles and the death rates of nerve cells and improving the survival rates of cells.
Other effects more typical of Alzheimer pathology could include inhibition of amyloid synthesis and reduction of neurofibrillar tangle burden.
