V. // Molecular Biology;Aug2010, Vol. 44 Issue 4, p546 

    Mutations in three genes PSEN1, PSEN2, and APP are known to be a cause of familial forms of Alzheimer’s disease ( AD). APOE gene polymorphism is a strong risk genetic factor for AD. We have evaluated allele and genotype frequency distribution of rs11136000 polymorphism in the clusterin (...

    It is shown that Notch 4 plays important roles in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD). To investigate whether three single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of the Notch4 gene are associated with AD, the three SNPs were genotyped by a polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length...
