Mutations in the gene for presenilin 1 are causative for the majority of cases of early onset familial Alzheimer's disease. Yet, the physiological function of presenilin 1 and the pathological mechanisms of the mutations leading to Alzheimer's disease are still unknown. To analyse potential pathological effects of presenilin 1 over-expression, we have(More)
The evidence that betaA4 is central to the pathology of Alzheimer's disease (AD) came from the identification of several missense mutations in the amyloid precursor protein (APP) gene co-segregating with familial AD (FAD). In an attempt to study the proteolytical processing of mutated human APP in vivo, we have created transgenic mice expressing the human(More)
This study describes the pharmacological properties of two novel cyclopyrrolone derivatives, RP 59037 [2-(7-chloro-2-naphthyridin-1,8-yl)-3-(5- methyl-2-oxohexyl)isoindolin-1-one] and RP 60503 [2-(7-chloro-2-naphthyridin-1,8-yl)isoindolin-1-yl-4- acetamidobutyrate], in the rodent. These compounds possess high affinity for the benzodiazepine binding site on(More)
