Ramos-Rodriguez JJ, Pacheco-Herrero M, Thyssen D, Murillo-Carretero MI, Berrocoso E, Spires-Jones TL, Bacskai BJ, Garcia-Alloza M (2013) Rapid beta-amyloid deposition and cognitive impairment after cholinergic denervation in app/ps1 mice. J Neuropathol Exp Neurol 72(4):272-285. doi: 10.1097/NEN.0b013e318288a8dd
Summary: The authors investigated whether specific cholinergic neurodegeneration is responsible for the deposition of plaques. APPswe/PS1dE9 transgenic mice received bilateral icv injections of 1-1.2 μg of mu p75-SAP (Cat. #IT-16) into the basal forebrain. Although the transgenic mice show plaque deposition, they do not exhibit other signs of Alzheimer’s disease. Lesioned transgenic animals, however, displayed increased β-amyloid plaque deposition, increased Tau phosphorylation, and early memory impairment that worsened with age.
