Sample text

Nearly 350 such families, predominantly affected sibling pairs and over 300 of their unaffected siblings, have been collected. Regular follow- up of unaffected subjects is in process in order to monitor them for disease onset and assess the role of risk factors for AD, and there are approximately 200 additional unaffected siblings in study families. In the present proposal, the two centers will study knowledge, attitudes, and behavior related to genetic studies and genetic testing in the unaffected individuals in these AD families and their primary care physicians, and will develop and pilot educational materials designed to address their needs for genetic information.

The applicants--at Studies 33 Mass General Hospital/Harvard Medical School and the University of Alabama--have been working together since 1990 as part of the NIMH Genetics Initiative to identify families with Alzheimer's disease for a genetic linkage study. Nearly 350 such families, predominantly affected sibling pairs and over 300 of their unaffected siblings, have been collected. Regular follow- up of unaffected subjects is in process in order to monitor them for disease onset and assess the role of risk factors for AD, and there are approximately 200 additional unaffected siblings in study families.

The aims are based on our findings that (i) thapsigargin, which increases intracellular calcium levels and causes endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-stress, conditions associated with Alzheimer's disease, activates GSK3b, and GSK3b is obligatory for thapsigargin-induced apoptosis, (ii) apoptotic stimuli cause intranuclear accumulation of GSK3b, and (iii) GSK3b inhibits the function of the key transcription factor CREB. Specific Aim 1 will test the hypothesis that GSK3b is activated by, and is a critical mediator of, toxicity induced by thapsigargin and other agents perturbing calcium or the ER, and will identify the mechanisms involved in GSK3b activation and assess the regulatory roles of GSK3b-binding proteins.
