Sample text

These findings are remarkable both because of their size and congruence but also because, as discussed below, clusterin was identified from a screen for peripheral, blood-based markers of AD [13]. To identify the same protein by data-driven, hypothesis-free studies using both genomic and proteomic techniques was remarkable. Arguably, clusterin was on the AD-radar before and hypothesis-driven S. Lovestone et al. / Markers and Mechanisms in AD studies had led others to the same conclusion that here was a gene/protein of importance in AD [14–17].

At the same time, and unknown to us, the Collingridge lab in Bristol, UK was onto the role of GSK3 in plasticity but their work approached this from another angle and showed that inhibition of GSK3 blocks long term depression (LTD) [63]. These two papers together with work from other labs supporting their findings show a clear role for GSK3 in regulating plasticity and in linking LTD and LTP. It is clear from the above that GSK3 is not the only tau-kinase but it is a major one and one that slots into the amyloid cascade.

That low lying fruit has been joined by a small number of other genes all of small effect, but the cause of much of the apparent inheritability of AD remains somewhat elusive. We are nonetheless beginning to understand more about disease pathogenesis from these studies. Pathway analysis of the GWAS are suggesting immune function, especially complement and innate immunity, cholesterol metabolism, and perhaps some element of endocytosis/exocytosis are all involved in disease processes [18]. Some of this we also knew before these genetic studies started.
