Biometals in Neurodegenerative Diseases

Biometals in Neurodegenerative Diseases: Mechanisms and Therapeutics is an authoritative and timely resource bringing together the major findings in the field for ease of access to those working in the field or with an interest in metals and their role in brain function, disease, and as therapeutic targets. Chapters cover metals in Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Motor Neuron Disease, Autism and lysosomal storage disorders. This book is written for academic researchers, clinicians and advanced graduate students studying or treating patients in neurodegeneration, neurochemistry, neurology and neurotoxicology. The scientific literature in this field is advancing rapidly, with approximately 300 publications per year adding to our knowledge of how biometals contribute to neurodegenerative diseases. Despite this rapid increase in our understanding of biometals in brain disease, the fields of biomedicine and neuroscience have often overlooked this information. The need to bring the research on biometals in neurodegeneration to the forefront of biomedical research is essential in order to understand neurodegenerative disease processes and develop effective therapeutics. Authoritative and timely resource bringing together the major findings in the field for those with an interest in metals and their role in the brain function, disease, and as therapeutic targets Written for academic researchers, clinicians and advanced graduate students studying, or treating, patients in neurodegeneration, neurochemistry, neurology and neurotoxicology Edited by international leaders in the field who have contributed greatly to the study of metals in neurodegenerative diseases

Biometals such as copper, zinc and iron have key biological functions, however, aberrant metabolism can lead to detrimental effects on cell function and survival. These biometals have important roles in the brain, driving cellular respiration, antioxidant activity, intracellular signaling and many additional structural and enzymatic functions. There is now considerable evidence that abnormal biometal homeostasis is a key feature of many neurodegenerative diseases and may have an important role in the onset and progression of disorders such as Alzheimer’s,

Neurodegenerative diseases of the human brain appear in variousforms, resulting in disorders of movement and coordination,cognitive deterioration and psychiatric disturbances. Many of thekey factors leading to neurodegenerative diseases are similar,including the dysfunction of metal ion homeostasis, redox-activemetal ions generating oxidative stress, and intracellular inclusionbodies. Metal-based Neurodegeneration presents a detailed surveyof the molecular origins of neurodegenerative diseases. Eachchapter is dedicated to a specific disease, presenting the latestscientific findings, including details of their biochemicalactors (proteins or peptides), their normal and

Iron is an essential element for almost all organisms, a cofactor playing a crucial role in a number of vital functions, including oxygen transport, DNA synthesis, and respiration. However, its ability to exchange electrons renders excess iron potentially toxic, since it is capable of catalyzing the formation of highly poisonous free radicals. As a consequence, iron homeostasis is tightly controlled by sophisticated mechanisms that have been partially elucidated. Because of its biological importance, numerous disorders have been recently linked to
