Amnestic mild cognitive impairment (MCI) might be more likely to progress to Alzheimer's disease than single non-memory MCI and multiple domain MCI. After excluding those who did not conform to the inclusion criteria of amnestic MCI or healthy controls, a neuropsychologic battery that included the Mini-Mental State Examination, Clinical Dementia Rating,(More)
BACKGROUND Planar cell polarity (PCP) is a major branch of Wnt signaling that controls the process of convergent extension in gastrulation and neurulation. PCP defects were associated with neural tube defects (NTDs) that are the most common central nervous system anomalies. PCP signaling is highly dosage sensitive and exhibits an antagonistic relationship(More)
BACKGROUND Neural tube defects (NTDs) are among the most common congenital defects affecting approximately 1 in 1000 live births in North America. Their etiology is complex including environmental and genetic factors. Defects in the planar cell polarity (PCP) signaling pathway have been strongly associated with NTDs in animal models and human cohorts.(More)
