Ribosomal gene expression of B-amyloid precursor protein, of presenilin and cytokines in brain and blood samples of Alzheimer's disease patients by Real Time PCR technique

Abstract

Alzheimer's disease is a neurodegenerative, irreversible and progressive disorder that is characterized by cognition's decline, loss of memory and mental confusion. The etiology of this disease is complex and genetically heterogeneous. There is evidence that at least four different genetic loci can confer inherited susceptibility to Alzheimer's disease. Mutations in the amyloid precursor gene (APP) located in chromosome 21q21.1, in the chromosome 14q24.3, gene which encodes presenilin 1 (PS1) and in the Presenilin-2 gene (PS2) located in chromosome 1q42.1 can be associated with Alzheimer's disease. The allele e4 for apolipoprotein E gene (APOE) located in 19q13.2, associated with an increased risk for the development of AD. Our group have shown a decrease of ribosomal gene activity in Alzheimer's disease using blood samples. The present project will use brain samples and blood samples of Alzheimer's disease patients and controls and it has the follow objectives: to characterize the gene expression of ribosomal genes (28S and 18S), ABPP, PS1, PS2, interleukin 1beta e 8 by Real Time PCR; to verify the polymorphisms of the promoter 1beta e 8 genes. This is the original study in the literature to compare the expression of these genes simultaneously in Alzheimer's disease and can propose the new way for understanding this important disease. (AU)
