Background: An ELISA was developed to determine the role of apoE/Aβ on soluble Aβ accumulation. Results: In AD transgenic mouse brain and human synaptosomes and CSF, levels of soluble apoE/Aβ are lower and oligomeric Aβ levels are higher with APOE4 and AD. Conclusion: Isoform-specific apoE/Aβ levels modulate soluble oligomeric Aβ levels. Significance: ApoE/Aβ and oligomeric Aβ represent a mechanistic approach to AD biomarkers.
