Candidate gene analysis of semaphorins in patients with Alzheimer’s disease

Semaphorins of the SemaIV family are expressed in neurons and decreased in brains from patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Accumulation of an internalized form of Sema3A is associated with degeneration of neurons, making these molecules candidates for the development of AD. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) rs36026860 and rs28469467 in Sema3A as… (More)
