Abstract: One characteristic of age-related neurodegeneration is thought to be cognitive deficits caused by oxidative stress. Neurons in the brain are considered to be particularly vulnerable to oxidative stress, leading to neuronal oxidative damage and neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease (AD) and senile dementia. The process of fusing synaptic plasma membranes and synaptic vesicles involves particular proteins, such as the soluble NSF (N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive factor) attachment protein receptor (…
