Soluble amyloid beta peptide (Abeta) is believed to cause synaptic dysfunction in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. Here, we examined in-vivo synaptic functions in the hippocampus in two lines of transgenic mice expressing different amounts of human wild-type amyloid precursor protein (APP). Compared with nontransgenic littermates, one transgenic line with higher APP expression displayed potent inhibition of paired-pulse facilitation and long-term potentiation in the absence of amyloid… CONTINUE READING
