Endogenous Apolipoprotein E (ApoE) Fragmentation Is Linked to Amyloid Pathology in Transgenic Mouse Models of Alzheimer’s Disease


The epsilon 4 allele of the apolipoprotein E (ApoE4) gene is the most important risk factor implicated in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) etiology. ApoE4 is more susceptible to proteolysis, and ApoE fragments have been shown to promote tau hyperphosphorylation and exert neurotoxic properties. While a plethora of studies deals with the effect of ApoE and its… (More)
