Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a frequent neurodegenerative disorder with progressive neuroinflammation, loss of synaptic plasticity in central neurons and memory deficiency. Numerous studies demonstrated the epigenetic modification of the expression of specific genes involved in the pathogenesis of amyloid-associated memory deficiency. It was also reported(More)
The pathological mechanism of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) needs to be elucidated. The Bcl-2 associated athanogene 5 (Bag5) is an important member in the Bag family. However, the role of Bag5 in AD has not yet been elucidated. In this study, we found that expression of Bag5 is elevated in the brains of AD transgenic Tg2576 mice at both mRNA levels and proteins.(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD), one of the most common neurodegenerative diseases, is characterized by extracellular deposition of amyloid-β (Aβ) peptide, and neuro-inflammatory processes mediated by microglial activation are known to play a pivotal role in AD. However, the expression pattern and function of Krüppel-like factor (KLF) 4 in AD remain unknown. In(More)
