    Background: The prevalence and incidence of dementia are low in Nigeria, but high among African-Americans. In these populations there is a high frequency of the risk-conferring APOE-e4 allele, but the risk ratio is less than in Europeans. In an admixed population of older Cubans we explored the...

    Background: The ε2, ε3, and ε4 alleles of the apolipoprotein E gene (APOE) encode three isoforms, apoE2, E3, and E4, respectively. The apoE isoforms circulate in different plasma concentrations, but plasma concentrations of the same isoform also differ between individuals. Whereas the...

    Abstract   Background: Apolipoprotein E (apoE) with three major alleles E2, E3 and E4 is one of the critical genes in lipid metabolism. Common apoE alleles are in association with an increase in risk for central nervous and cardiovascular diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease,...

    Background: Apolipoprotein E (ApoE) ε4 genotype is a well-established risk factor for Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, its effect on predicting conversion from normal to "cognitive impairment, no dementia" (CIND) and from CIND to AD is less clear. Methods: We used a nested case-control...

    Apolipoprotein (apo) E4 is the major genetic risk factor for Alzheimer's disease (AD). ApoE4 has sex-dependent effects, whereby the risk of developing AD is higher in apoE4-expressing females than males. However, the mechanism underlying the sex difference, in relation to apoE4, is unknown....

    Background: Apolipoprotein E (ApoE) plays a role in the regulation of lipid metabolism in humans. ApoE, a 229-amino-acid polypeptide, is classified into three major isoforms (E2, E3, and E4) according to the differences in amino acids at positions 112 and 158. In the normal population, ApoE3...

    Background The role of apolipoprotein E (ApoE) alleles has received recent attention in depressive disorders, the ApoE ϵ4 conferring greater risk for poorer outcomes, and the ApoE ϵ2 allele providing some protective effects. Depression is common in multiple sclerosis (MS) and the role of...

    Vascular dementia is the second common cause of dementia, only second to Alzheimer's disease in later life. The Apolipoprotein E (ApoE) gene polymorphism as a risk factor in vascular dementia has been suggested, but direct evidence from genetic association studies remains inconclusive even in...

    Abstract Apolipoprotein E (ApoE) allele frequencies were examined in a population-based sample (n = 475; age range 65-84 years; Amsterdam Study of the Elderly). The relation of ApoE [sub epsilon]4 with dementia and with various types of late-life depression was studied. Depression was measured...
