Wang et al .[sup][2] found independent loss-of-function mutations in presenilin enhancer gamma-secretase subunit ( PSENEN ), presenilin 1 ( PSEN1 ), or Nicastrin ( NCSTN ), which encode essential components of the a-secretase multiprotein complex.
The study tracked brain PET imaging changes in 52 people: 27 from families with autosomal dominant Alzheimer's disease (ADAD) mutations, including presenilin 1 or amyloid precursor protein genes, and 25 with sporadic Alzheimer's disease or mild cognitive impairment (MCI).
"These mutations involve the gene for the amyloid precursor protein (APP) and the genes for the presenilin 1 and presenilin 2 proteins.
However, it will be interesting to see if amyloid-based therapies are useful in genetic cases (amyloid precursor protein and presenilin 1 or 2) of AD.
Instead the MGH team used a gel-based, three-dimensional culture system to grow human neural stem cells that carried variants in two genes -- the amyloid precursor protein and presenilin 1 -- known to underlie early-onset familial Alzheimer's Disease (FAD).
