Two related findings that surely signal a major new direction in the study of Alzheimer’s disease (AD): Two means of controlling intracellular calcium homeostasis appears to play a major role in controlling levels of the Aß protein, a major component of the senile plaques that characterize AD and (thusly) a likely source of AD-associated cell death. Specifically, deficiencies in two distinct calcium pumps appear to promote molecular events associated with AD pathology.
