These protein structures can then build up between neurons and alter cell function. Although the amount of amyloid proteins and severity of a patient’s Alzheimer’s has been found to be uncorrelated, minimizing secondary nucleation of these proteins is still desirable. Secondary nucleation is a process where new proteins are formed from the presence of parent proteins, so eliminating the parent proteins would limit the potential for more of these abnormal fibers from forming.
