Amyloid-Beta protein regulates cellular trafficking of intercellular gap junction protein Connexin 43 in astrocytes.

In this study, we have determined the cellular mechanisms by which amyloid - Beta (A Beta) peptide modifies Cx43 channel function, thereby contributing to Alzheimer’s disease pathology. (Maulik M, et. al., J Biol Chem, 2020).

The First-order Mott Transition in V2O3 has Traits of Second Order Transitions.

This work shows that the strongly hysteretic first-order phase transition in V2O3, and possibly other similar materials with long-ranged interactions, can have features usually associated with second-order transitions
