There is accumulating evidence that soluble amyloid-beta (Abeta) oligomers, rather than amyloid fibrils, are the principal pathogenic species in Alzheimer disease (AD). Here, we have developed a novel enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) specific for high-molecular-weight (HMW) Abeta oligomers. Analysis of Abeta oligomers derived from synthetic Abeta(More)
To study the mechanisms of discrimination between various forms of vitamin E, four normal subjects, one patient with lipoprotein lipase deficiency, and three patients with abnormal apolipoprotein B-100 production were given an oral dose containing three tocopherols labeled with differing amounts of deuterium (2R,4'R,8'R-alpha-(5,7-(C2H3)2)tocopheryl acetate(More)
A b s t r a c t The specificity of monoclonal antibodies against gastric mucins (designated as HIK1083, PGM 36, and PGM 37) was studied immunohistochemically in normal, metaplastic, and neoplastic human tissues. These antibodies labeled class III mucin-producing cells identified by paradoxical concanavalin A staining in normal stomach, duodenum (Brunner(More)
Investigation of the interactions of nerve cells with human apolipoprotein E (apoE), beta-amyloid (Abeta), and their complex, which are known to be included in senile plaques, is necessary to clarify the functional role of apoE in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease. Using flow cytometric analysis, we investigated the isoform-specific effects of apoE on(More)
Phytosterolemia is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by the excessive absorption, reduced excretion, and consequent high tissue and plasma levels of plant sterols, by the presence of tendon xanthomas, and by premature atherosclerosis. Low HMG-CoA reductase (HRase) activity and mass have been reported in liver and mononuclear leucocytes and low(More)
