"Several G-protein coupled receptors (GPCR) are upregulated in Alzheimer's Disease (AD), which ought to facilitate neurotransmission, and improve cognition. Yet, despite this upregulation, associated physiological effects are not observed in AD patients. This paradox solicits urgent attention to find a suitable justification for disturbed neurotransmission in AD. This article focuses on the role of Aβ granules and their possible interaction with GPCRs that modulate neurotransmission and AD progression." Read more at the source
