APP locus duplication causes autosomal dominant early-onset Alzheimer disease with cerebral amyloid angiopathy.


PMID 16369530

Abstract

We report duplication of the APP locus on chromosome 21 in five families with autosomal dominant early-onset Alzheimer disease (ADEOAD) and cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA). Among these families, the duplicated segments had a minimal size ranging from 0.58 to 6.37 Mb. Brains from individuals with APP duplication showed abundant parenchymal and vascular deposits of amyloid-beta peptides. Duplication of the APP locus, resulting in accumulation of amyloid-beta peptides, causes ADEOAD with CAA.
