Ground-breaking new insight into the development of Alzheimer's disease
Date:4/22/2008

cells show an increase in the protein BACE1 or A-secretase. VIB researcher Sabastien Hubert and colleagues, under the direction of Bart De Strooper and in collaboration with international experts, looked into the cause of this increase.

To this end the VIB researchers checked the expression profiles of certain microRNA's, i.e. the short pieces of RNA that regulate protein production. In patients where there was an increase in the BACE1 protein, there was a significant reduction in miR-29a and miR-29b-1. This observation suggests the possible role of certain miRNA's in the increase of BACE1 and in the formation of plaques in the brains of patients with Alzheimer's disease.

On the one hand this research raises hopes for a better diagnostic test. Timely prescription of certain medicines for Alzheimer's disease results after all in a better response, and thus a better quality of life for the patient. On the other hand there is the question of whether these microRNA's could in the future form the basis of a new drug.
