  • Dissecting the Aggregation Events of Alzheimer’s disease Associated A? peptide Variants by the Combined use of Different Fluorescent Probes
  • ????
  • Annan publikation (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • The formation of soluble prefibrillar oligomeric species of the amyloid ? peptide (A?) has been implicated as a causative agent in the development of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). It is therefore important to characterize the properties of these aggregates, which precede the formation of amyloid fibrils. We studied the in vitro aggregation process of two A?40 peptide variants through the combined use of four different fluorescent probes and transmission electron microscopy. Previous studies have shown that these two studied A?40 variants exhibit different levels of neurodegeneration when expressed in the central nervous system of Drosophila melanogaster. In the present study, we demonstrate distinct differences in aggregate morphology and their binding properties to different fluorescent probes during in vitro fibrillation of these A? peptides. Our results indicate a potential link between the observed neurodegenerative properties and the biophysical properties of distinct aggregated A? species.

  • Observations in APP Bitransgenic Mice Suggest thatDiffuse and Compact Plaques Form via IndependentProcesses in Alzheimer’s Disease

    • Studies of familial Alzheimer's disease suggest that misfolding and aggregation of amyloid-? (A?) peptides initiate the pathogenesis. The Arctic mutation of A? precursor protein (APP) results in AD, and Arctic A? is more prone to form A? protofibrils and extracellular deposits. Herein is demonstrated that the burden of diffuse A? deposits but not compact plaques is increased when tg-Swe mice are crossed with tg-ArcSwe mice synthesizing low levels of Arctic A?. The diffuse deposits in bitransgenic mice, which contain primarily wild-type A?42, accumulate in regions both with and without transgene expression. However, APP processing, when compared with tg-Swe, remains unchanged in young bitransgenic mice, whereas wild-type A?42 aggregation is accelerated and fibril architecture is altered in vitro and in vivo when a low level of Arctic A?42 is introduced. Thus, the increased number of diffuse deposits is likely due to physical interactions between Arctic A? and wild-type A?42. The selective increase of a single type of parenchymal A? deposit suggests that different pathways lead to formation of diffuse and compact plaques. These findings could have general implications for Alzheimer's disease pathogenesis and particular relevance to patients heterozygous for the Arctic APP mutation. Moreover, it further illustrates how A? neuropathologic features can be manipulated in vivo by mechanisms similar to those originally conceptualized in prion research.

  • Effects of smoking cessation on insulin and cardiovascular risk factors--a controlled study of 4 months' duration
  • 1996
  • Ingår i: Journal of Internal Medicine. - Blackwell Publishing. - 0954-6820. ; 240:4, s. 189-194
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • OBJECTIVES: To investigate the effects on serum lipids, plasma fibrinogen, plasma insulin, plasma C-peptide and blood glucose, of smoking cessation after 4 months. To develop a group-based smoking intervention programme in primary health care. SETTING: Twenty health centres in primary health care in southern Sweden. SUBJECTS: Four hundred habitual smokers (> 10 cigarettes per day-1, > 10 years), recruited by advertisement in local papers. INTERVENTION: The smokers were randomized, after stratification for age and sex, to one intervention group (n = 200) and one control group (n = 200). The intervention group was offered supportive group sessions and free nicotine supplementation (patches, chewing gum). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: All participants were investigated at the start and after 4 months (medical history, physical examination, laboratory evaluation). Blood samples were drawn for determination of glucose, insulin and C-peptide, both in the fasting state and during an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT), and for measurement of lipoproteins, fibrinogen, nicotine and cotinine. RESULTS: In the intervention group 98 of the subjects (48%) had quit smoking after 4 months. They were compared with the 156 subjects in the control group (91%) who were still daily smokers during the whole period. There were no significant differences in any variable between the two (total) experimental groups at baseline. Plasma nicotine and cotinine decreased (P < 0.001) in the intervention group following smoking cessation, and weight increased by 2.7 kg. In the intervention group HDL-cholesterol increased by 11% (P < 0.001), whereas HbA1c increased by 2% (P < 0.05) only in the control group. No changes occurred in levels of glucose, insulin, C-peptide and fibrinogen. CONCLUSION: The smoking cessation programme had a success rate of almost 50% over 4 months. Smoking cessation was associated with a marked increase in HDL-cholesterol levels but did not affect glucose tolerance. A concomitant weight increase may have blunted any independent beneficial effect of smoking cessation on glucose metabolism.

  • Imaging distinct conformational states of amyloid-? fibrils in Alzheimer's disease using novel luminescent probes
  • 2007
  • Ingår i: ACS Chemical Biology. - 1554-8929. ; 2:8, s. 553-560
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Using luminescent conjugated polyelectrolyte probes (LCPs), we demonstrate the possibility to distinguish amyloid-? 1-42 peptide (A?1-42) fibril conformations, by analyzing in vitro generated amyloid fibrils of A?1-42 formed under quiescent and agitated conditions. LCPs were then shown to resolve such conformational heterogeneity of amyloid deposits in vivo. A diversity of amyloid deposits depending upon morphology and anatomic location was illustrated with LCPs in frozen ex vivo brain sections from a transgenic mouse model (tg-APPswe) of Alzheimer's disease. Comparative LCP fluorescence showed that compact-core plaques of amyloid ? precursor protein transgenic mice were composed of rigid dense amyloid. A more abundant form of amyloid plaque displayed morphology of a compact center with a protruding diffuse exterior. Surprisingly, the compact center of these plaques showed disordered conformations of the fibrils, and the exterior was composed of rigid amyloid protruding from the disordered center. This type of plaque appears to grow from more loosely assembled regions toward solidified amyloid tentacles. This work demonstrates how application of LCPs can prove helpful to monitor aggregate structure of in vivo formed amyloid deposits such as architecture, maturity, and origin.

  • A highly insoluble state of Abeta similar to that of Alzheimer's disease brain is found in Arctic APP transgenic mice.
  • 2009

    • Amyloid-beta (Abeta) is a major drug target in Alzheimer's disease. Here, we demonstrate that deposited Abeta is SDS insoluble in tgAPP-ArcSwe, a transgenic mouse model harboring the Arctic (E693G) and Swedish (KM670/671NL) APP mutations. Formic acid was needed to extract the majority of deposited Abeta in both tgAPP-ArcSwe and Alzheimer's disease brain, but not in a commonly used type of mouse model with the Swedish mutation alone. Interestingly, the insoluble state of Arctic Abeta was determined early on and did not gradually evolve with time. In tgAPP-ArcSwe, Abeta plaques displayed a patchy morphology with bundles of Abeta fibrils, whereas amyloid cores in tgAPP-Swe were circular with radiating fibrils. Amyloid was more densely stacked in tgAPP-ArcSwe, as demonstrated with a conformation sensitive probe. A reduced increase in plasma Abeta was observed following acute administration of an Abeta antibody in tgAPP-ArcSwe, results that might imply reduced brain to plasma Abeta efflux. TgAPP-ArcSwe, with its insoluble state of deposited Abeta, could serve as a complementary model to better predict the outcome of clinical trials.

  • Drosophila Melanogaster as a Model System for Studies of Islet Amyloid Polypeptide Aggregation
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: PLoS ONE. - Public Library of Science (PLoS). - 1932-6203. ; 6:6
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Background: Recent research supports that aggregation of islet amyloid polypeptide (IAPP) leads to cell death and this makes islet amyloid a plausible cause for the reduction of beta cell mass, demonstrated in patients with type 2 diabetes. IAPP is produced by the beta cells as a prohormone, and proIAPP is processed into IAPP by the prohormone convertases PC1/3 and PC2 in the secretory granules. Little is known about the pathogenesis for islet amyloid and which intracellular mechanisms are involved in amyloidogenesis and induction of cell death.Methodology/Principal Findings: We have established expression of human proIAPP (hproIAPP), human IAPP (hIAPP) and the non-amyloidogenic mouse IAPP (mIAPP) in Drosophila melanogaster, and compared survival of flies with the expression driven to different cell populations. Only flies expressing hproIAPP in neurons driven by the Gal4 driver elavC(155,Gal4) showed a reduction in lifespan whereas neither expression of hIAPP or mIAPP influenced survival. Both hIAPP and hproIAPP expression caused formation of aggregates in CNS and fat body region, and these aggregates were both stained by the dyes Congo red and pFTAA, both known to detect amyloid. Also, the morphology of the highly organized protein granules that developed in the fat body of the head in hIAPP and hproIAPP expressing flies was characterized, and determined to consist of 15.8 nm thick pentagonal rod-like structures.Conclusions/Significance: These findings point to a potential for Drosophila melanogaster to serve as a model system for studies of hproIAPP and hIAPP expression with subsequent aggregation and developed pathology.

  • Ceruloplasmin and atrial fibrillation: evidence of causality from a population-based Mendelian randomization study.
  • 2014
  • Ingår i: Journal of Internal Medicine. - Wiley-Blackwell Publishing. - 0954-6820 .- 1365-2796. ; 275:2, s. 164-171

    • Inflammatory diseases and inflammatory markers secreted by the liver, including C-reactive protein (CRP) and ceruloplasmin, have been associated with incident atrial fibrillation (AF). Genetic studies have not supported a causal relationship between CRP and AF, but the relationship between ceruloplasmin and AF has not been studied. The purpose of this Mendelian randomization study was to explore whether genetic polymorphisms in the gene encoding ceruloplasmin are associated with elevated ceruloplasmin levels, and whether such genetic polymorphisms are also associated with the incidence of AF.

  • Self-rated health in relation to age and gender: influence on mortality risk in the Malmö Preventive Project.
  • 2005
  • Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Public Health. - Taylor & Francis. - 1403-4948. ; 33:3, s. 183-9
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Aims: A study was undertaken to examine whether poor self-rated health (SRH) can independently predict all-cause mortality during 22-year follow-up in middle-aged men and women. Subjects and methods: Data are derived from a population-based study in Malmo¨ , Sweden. This included baseline laboratory testing and a self-administered questionnaire. The question on global SRH was answered by 15,590 men (mean age 46.4 years) and 10,089 women (49.4 years). Social background characteristics (occupation, marital status) were based on data from national censuses. Mortality was retrieved from national registers. Results: At screening 4,261 (27.3%) men and 3,085 (30.6%) women reported poor SRH. Among subjects rating their SRH as low, 1,022 (24.0%) men and 228 (7.4%) women died during follow-up. Corresponding figures for subjects rating their SRH as high were 1801 (15.9%) men and 376 (5.4%) women. An analysis of survival in subjects reporting poor SRH revealed an age-adjusted hazard risk ratio (HR, 95%CI) for men HR 1.5 (1.4–1.7), and for women HR 1.4 (1.2–1.6). The corresponding HR after adjusting for possible social confounders was for men HR 1.3 (1.1–1.4), and women HR 1.1 (0.9–1.4). When additional adjustment was made for biological risk factors the association for men was still significant, HR 1.2 (1.1–1.3). Conclusion: Poor SRH predicts increased long-term mortality in healthy, middle-aged subjects. For men the association is independent of both social background and selected biological variables. The adjustment for biological variables can be questioned as they might represent mediating mechanisms in a possible causal chain of events.

  • Improvement of the plasma lipoprotein pattern after institution of insulin treatment in diabetes mellitus
  • 1982
  • Ingår i: Diabetes Care. - American Diabetes Association. - 0149-5992. ; 5:3, s. 322-325
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Plasma lipids and lipoproteins were studied in 26 nonobese diabetic patients, either newly diagnosed or unsatisfactorily controlled by oral antidiabetic treatment. Measurements were performed before and 3-4 mo after the institution of insulin treatment. In a subgroup of seven patients, the activities of lipoprotein lipase (LPL) and hepatic lipase (HL) in postheparin plasma and the elimination rate of exogenous triglyceride were also monitored. After beginning insulin treatment, diabetic control was improved as demonstrated by decreasing levels of HbA1. Mean plasma cholesterol and triglyceride levels decreased by about 10% (P less than 0.01) and 40% (P less than 0.05), respectively. The decrease in plasma cholesterol was largely accounted for by a fall in LDL cholesterol levels (-8%, P less than 0.05), while plasma HDL cholesterol concentrations increased by about 12% (P less than 0.01). The elimination rate of exogenous triglycerides increased significantly. There was a suggestive, but not significant, increase in LPL activity while the HL activity remained unchanged. It is concluded that the improved diabetic control after institution of insulin treatment results in a significant improvement of the plasma lipoprotein profile. Since the improvement of the lipoprotein pattern is not strictly correlated to the amelioration of indices reflecting glucose transport, we suggest that the plasma lipoprotein pattern may provide an additional tool for monitoring the degree of control in diabetes mellitus.
