Human apolipoprotein E (apoE) exists in three major isoforms encoded by distinct alleles (APOE epsilon2, epsilon3 and epsilon4) and has important functions in nerve development and repair. Inheritance of the 4 allele is a major risk factor for the development of Alzheimer's disease. To investigate the role of APOE polymorphisms in embryonic development, we(More)
BACKGROUND The remethylation cycle of methionine is folate and vitamin B(12) (cobalamin) dependent and appears to be crucial for embryonic development, probably through effects on synthesis of DNA, proteins and polyamines. Transcobalamin (TC) transports vitamin B(12) to the tissues. The objective of the present investigation was to explore the putative(More)
