Following the identification of mutations in the beta-amyloid precursor protein (APP) gene in familial, early onset Alzheimer's disease (AD), we have developed a screening protocol using single strand conformation analysis (SSCA) to screen exon 17 for the known mutations within APP. In addition, we used this protocol to screen the other seventeen exons of(More)
Several point mutations within exons 16 and 17 of the amyloid precursor protein (APP) gene have been reported that are associated with Alzheimer's disease in a small number of familial cases. To determine the size of the APP gene and the organization of the exons within human genomic DNA, we have characterized 11 Yeast Artificial Chromosome (YAC)(More)
