Interaction Information:

Comment ApoE4 constitutes the most important genetic risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease (AD), ApoE3 is neutral, and ApoE2 is protective. The higher signaling efficacy of ApoE4 than ApoE3 in stimulating APP and Abeta synthesis may cause a cumulative effect over an individual’s lifetime, thus accounting for the increased Abeta concentrations and AD incidence in individuals expressing ApoE4.
