Interaction Information:

Comment The role that APOE plays in transport and clearance of molecules depends on the APOE isoform, and these transport differences may be related to differences in receptor utilization for the isoforms, with APOE4-Abeta complexes using the very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) receptor and the other isoforms using LRP-1. These isoform specific differences may also affect how the blood-brain barrier (BBB) transports insulin, free fatty acids (FFAs), and other metabolites involved in cognitive processes.
