Mutations in the amyloid precursor protein and presenilin 1 and 2 genes result in elevated plasma levels of the amyloid beta-peptide species terminating at amino acid residue 42 (A beta1-42). In a longitudinal study of unrelated elderly individuals, those who subsequently developed Alzheimer's disease had higher plasma levels of A beta1-42 at entry than did those who remained free of dementia. The results indicate that elevated plasma levels of the released A beta peptide A beta1-42 may be… CONTINUE READING
