Amyloid beta-protein (Abeta) plays a pivotal role in Alzheimer's disease (AD). Therapeutic strategies inhibiting Abeta aggregation and promoting extracellular Abeta removal are currently advocated. Here, we review recent literature on intracellular Abeta, especially intranuclear Abeta, and its associated molecules. We also discuss alternative therapeutic strategies to inhibit intracellular Abeta-related pathogenesis.
