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)
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)
