Association studies of cholesterol metabolism genes (CH25H, ABCA1 and CH24H) in Alzheimer's disease.

Abstract

Recent studies have demonstrated that cholesterol metabolism has an important role in Alzheimer's disease (AD) pathogenesis, suggesting that cholesterol-related genes may be significant genetic risk factors for AD. Based on the results of genome-wide screens, along with biological studies, we selected three genes as candidates for AD risk factors: ATP… (More)
