(1990) found an association between ~A deposition and ~APP expression while others did not (Golde et al. 1990; Hyman et al. 1993). However, because aggregation of ~P into ~A does not depend upon linear ~P concentration but rather upon it reaching a critical level (Jarrett and Lansbury 1993), the occurrence of a single ~P peak may be more critical for ~A deposition than continuously moderately elevated ~P concentration.

1992) and becomes protease resistant after aggregation into ~A fibrils (Nordstedt et al. 1994; Knauer et al. 1992). That ~A formation plays an important role in AD is based on the following findings: (1) Cerebral ~A deposits are found in all cases of AD; (2) ~A but not ~P is neurotoxic (Yankner et al. 1990) and activates microglia and astrocytes in vitro (Meda et al. 1995; Pike et al. 1994); (3) neurons surrounding ~A are at greater risk of undergoing cell death, as assessed by detection of neuronal DNA fragmentation in AD autopsies (Lassmann et al.
