Beta-secretase (BACE) and glycogen synthase kinase (GSK 3) are two enzymes thought to play a role in Alzheimer's disease. We extracted mRNA from 90 Alzheimer and 81 control brains. Levels of mRNA were quantified for BACE and GSK 3 with TaqMan real-time RT-PCR. We found no change in the Alzheimer's disease brains relative to controls for either the BACE or(More)
Quantitative human mRNA data are derived from post-mortem or biopsied tissue. RNA degradation, poor replication, a large mRNA variance and confounding factors such as brain pH and age of death are often cited, however, as objections to the data's reliability. A central question is whether post-mortem human mRNA can be treated as a statistically ordered(More)
Insoluble beta-amyloid deposits in Alzheimer's disease (AD) brain are proteolytically derived from the membrane bound amyloid precursor protein (APP). The APP gene is differentially spliced to produce isoforms that can be classified into those containing a Kunitz-type serine protease inhibitor domain (K(+), APP(751), APP(770), APRP(365) and APRP(563)), and(More)
BACKGROUND Surveillance programmes for women at increased genetic risk of breast cancer are being established worldwide but little is known of their efficacy in early detection of cancers and hence reduction in mortality. METHODS Data were contributed from seven centres participating in the EU Demonstration Programme on Clinical Services for Familial(More)
