Washington: A stress-related protein that is genetically linked to depression, anxiety and other psychiatric disorders was found to be contributing to the acceleration of Alzheimer`s disease, according to a new study.When the stress-related protein FKBP51 partners with another protein known as Hsp90, this formidable chaperone protein complex prevents the clearance from the brain of the toxic tau protein associated with Alzheimer`s disease.The University of South Florida study was done using test tube experiments, mice genetically engineered to produce abnormal tau protein like that accumulated in the brains of people with Alzheimer`s disease, and post-mortem human Alzheimer`s brain tissue.
