Neprilysin-2 (NEP2), a close homolog of neprilysin (NEP), degrades amyloid-β (Aβ) and serves an important role in clearing Aβ in vivo. We measured NEP2 and NEP mRNA levels from non-impaired (NI), mild cognitive impaired (MCI), and clinical Alzheimer’s disease (AD) subjects in the mid-temporal gyrus, mid-frontal gyrus, caudate, and cerebellum. NEP2 activity levels were also determined. Our results indicate that NEP2 and NEP mRNA expression is altered in MCI subjects relative to NI subjects in AD-susceptible re…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
