Aztiria E, Cataudella T, Spampinato S, Leanza G (2009) Septal grafts restore cognitive abilities and amyloid precursor protein metabolism. Neurobiol Aging 30(10):1614-1625. doi: 10.1016/j.neurobiolaging.2007.12.018
Summary: Although cholinergic loss and the presence of ß-amyloid plaques are well documented in Alzheimer’s disease, it is unknown whether restoration of regulatory cholinergic inputs affects in vivo b-amyloid precursor protein (APP). 5 µg of 192-IgG-SAP (Cat. #IT-01) was split between the lateral ventricles of rats. 6 months post-surgery the animals were implanted with cholinergic-rich septal tissue grafts. Grafted animals exhibited normal or near-normal levels of APP. APP levels, as well as improved spatial navigation performance, correlated strongly with graft-induced cholinergic changes.
