Beta amyloid (1-42) is the predominant form of β-amyloid protein found in the brains of patients with Alzheimer′s disease and Down′s syndrome. Beta amyloid down-regulates bcl-2 (a key anti-apoptotic protein) and upregulates bax (cell death promoter) with evidence suggesting that it renders neurons vulnerable to age-dependent stress and neurodegeneration
