Interaction Information:

Comment Abeta accumulations can promote tau hyper-phosphorylation and formation of dementia associated paired helical filament-containing neuronal cytoskeletal lesions (neurofibrillary tangles, neuritic plaques, and neuropil threads) via functional impairment of the insulin signaling cascade, and attendant increased levels of GSK-3beta activity.
