In humans, such pre β particles have not yet been identified, and one of the aims of this study is to identify such precursor particles and the factors that may remodel them.These small particles are likely candidates for participating in the process of “reverse cholesterol transport” as has been suggested for the interstitial fluid lipoproteins. (19) have demonstrated a unique profile of HDL generation and cholesterol efflux from rat astrocytes, whereby cholesterol-rich (apo E-HDL) and cholesterol-poor (apo A-I-HDL) are generated.In this study, we carried out a detailed analysis of lipids and lipoproteins in CSF collected from patients affected by AD, by other forms of dementia, or from non-demented controls in order to look for major differences in the lipid and lipoprotein composition among the different diagnostic groups.Lipoproteins were isolated by density gradient ultracentrifugation and combined with sensitive and specific apolipoprotein assays enabling the direct lipoprotein analysis on small sample amounts.We investigated the lipoprotein distribution and composition in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in a group of patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) or affected by other types of dementia in comparison to non-demented controls. In analogy with the metabolism of lipids in the peripheral circulation, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) lipids are transported by lipoproteins.We found slightly decreased apolipoprotein (apo)E and cholesterol concentrations in CSF of AD patients and moderately increased apo A-I concentrations, while in patients suffering from other types of dementia the apo A-I CSF concentration was increased. Although several reports describe the composition of CSF lipoproteins (4, 8–12), their detailed structure and functions are only poorly understood.Enzymatically active LCAT was present in human CSF as well as PLTP activity and mass; no CETP mass was detected. On the contrary, increasing cellular cholesterol concentrations by adding β-VLDL to Cos1 cells causes a decrease of the secretion of the soluble form of APP (s APP).
It is clearly established that the inheritance of the apolipoprotein (apo) E4 allele is associated with increased risk of developing AD at a younger age (1, 3).Bi-dimensional analysis demonstrated pre-β and α apo A-I-containing particles; apo E and apo A-II were detected only in α-migrating particles. Such active lipid redistribution might prove to be functionally important because several recent studies have shown that the neuronal membrane cholesterol content influences processing of the amyloid precursor protein (APP) (13–15).Apo A-IV distributed both to pre-β and γ-migrating particles; the LCAT signal was co-localized in this γ-migrating fraction. Decreasing the neuronal cell cholesterol content, by combining a treatment with lovastatin (HMG-Co A reductase inhibitor) and α-methyl-β-cyclodextrin, reduces amyloid β production.It is not known in what form HDL precursors are synthesized in the brain and whether remodeling occurs within the CSF.HDL remodeling in the circulation is largely mediated by the enzyme lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) and the lipid transfer proteins cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) and phospholipid transfer protein (PLTP), but in the brain these pathways remain largely obscure.As you might expect, she has traveled the world, but her specialties and interests lie in the Caribbean.

Some reports link the development of AD with lipid metabolism in the brain: lipid concentrations, especially that of fatty acid and phospholipids and to a lesser extent cholesterol, which are reduced in the CSF of AD patients (16). Its most important functions are to redistribute lipids needed for neurite growth through receptor-mediated uptake and to interact with the amyloid β peptide (4–7).
