Plasma amyloid beta-peptide 1-42 and incipient Alzheimer's disease.

  [ Not Yet Rated ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Mayeux R, Tang MX, Jacobs DM, Manly J, Bell K, Mer • www.ProHealth.com • September 1, 1999


Mutations in the amyloid precursor protein and presenilin 1 and 2 genes result in elevated plasma levels of the amyloid beta-peptide species terminating at amino acid residue 42 (A beta1-42). In a longitudinal study of unrelated elderly individuals, those who subsequently developed Alzheimer's disease had higher plasma levels of A beta1-42 at entry than did those who remained free of dementia. The results indicate that elevated plasma levels of the released A beta peptide A beta1-42 may be detected several years before the onset of symptoms, supporting that extracellular A beta1-42 plays an important role in the pathogenesis of late-onset Alzheimer's disease.
