The metabolism of Abeta itself can produce oxidative stress (Nelson & Alkon 2005). Moreover, Abeta has been found to cause aberrant mitochondrial metabolism through binding to a mitochondrial alcohol dehydrogenase (ABAD) that inhibits its activity (Lustbader et al. 2004; Takuma et al. 2005). This interaction has been hypothesised to directly contribute to oxidative stress in AD. Moreover, oxidation of Abeta itself has been hypothesised to be an early event in amyloid plaque biogenesis and perhaps in Abeta pathogenesis (Head et al.
