1995). After global ischemia, apoE and PAPP are upregulated simultaneously. Isoform-specific (apoE3>apoE4), oxidation-dependent, and uncommonly strong binding of apoE and PP/PA (see Fig. 1) has been demonstrated in vitro and in AD brain (Naslund et a1. 1995; LaDu et a1. 1995), providing an explanation for their colocalization. ApoE (apoE4>apoE3) accelerates aggregation of PP into pA (Wisniewski et a1. 1994). As the apoE-pp complex does not easily cross the BBB, apoE in AD deposits may originate in the CNS rather than from an extracerebral source.

However, because aggregation of ~P into ~A does not depend upon linear ~P concentration but rather upon it reaching a critical level (Jarrett and Lansbury 1993), the occurrence of a single ~P peak may be more critical for ~A deposition than continuously moderately elevated ~P concentration. Although it has been shown that the prevalence of ~P deposits increases with age (Davies et al. 1988), it cannot be concluded that ~P The Vascular Dementias and Cerebrovascular Involvement 27 accumulates gradually over time.
