Congress - Vienna, Austria
The 14th International congress on amino acids, peptides and proteinsto be held in Vienna, Austria, august 3-7th, 2015 addresses all chemistry and biology of these molecules and is this time also housing a whole day session on brain receptors in Alzheimer's disease and a whole session on proteins linked to cognitive function.
This is of utmost importance because receptors are serving as pharmacological targets and agonists as well as antagonists are readily available. A key paper addressing this issue is:
Changes of several brain receptor complexes in the cerebral cortex of patients with Alzheimer disease: probable new potential pharmaceutical targets. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24292102)
In particular work on changes of receptor complexes in Alzheimer's disease and related disorders including Down Syndrome is welcome for presentation as it is the receptor complexes that carry out major functions; reference
A special issue on Brain receptors in Alzheimer's disease is planned to be published in AMINO ACIDS, the forum of amino acid, peptide and protein research (impact factor 3.9).
