Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by the deposition both of extracellular amyloid beta peptide (A[beta]) and intracellular neurofibrillar tangles (NFT).
Another apparent symptom of AD occurs when the nerve cells contain large quantities of neurofibrillar tangles, which basically consist of collapsed cytoskeletal microtubules because of over-phosphorylation of tau protein (Peng and Wang, 2004).
"Other effects more typical of Alzheimer pathology could include inhibition of amyloid synthesis and reduction of neurofibrillar tangle burden."
