Abstract: Increased levels of isoaspartyl residues (isoAsp) have previously been found in proteins of Alzheimer's disease (AD) brains and in blood proteins of patients suffering from uremia, the disease sharing common pathological features with AD. One can hypothesize that higher levels of isoAsp should be present in blood proteins of AD patients. Also, because of higher AD prevalence in females, they can be expected to have higher level of isoAsp than males. Here we modified our recently developed proteome-wide isoAsp …
