Ashraf M Rajab

Article Type: Commentary | First Published: September 11, 2021

A close and contemplative look at the published neurology literature makes it clear to the reader that epilepsy research possesses more popularity and occupies a higher position in the plethora of scholarly medical writings.

Fragmentation of Apolipoprotein E4 is Required for Differential Expression of Inflammation and Activation Related Genes in Microglia Cells

Troy T Rohn, James D Beck, Stephanie J Galla, Noail F Isho, Tanner B Pollock, Tarun Suresh, Arni Kulkarni, Tanya Sanghal and Eric J Hayden

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 10, 2021

The apolipoprotein E4 (APOE4) allele represents the single greatest risk factor for late-onset Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and accumulating evidence suggests that fragmentation with a toxic-gain of function may be a key molecular step associated with this risk. Recently, we demonstrated strong immunoreactivity of a 151 amino-terminal fragment of apoE4 (E4-fragment) within the nucleus of microglia in the human AD brain. In vitro, this fragment led to toxicity and activation of inflammatory process...
