The first DNA methylation and laser assisted microdissection study in Alzheimer's Disease in humans
What is it about?
This is the first DNA methylation epigenetic study in the human epigenome through laser microdissection in the most common class of dementia (Late Onset Alzheimer Disease). Here we studied the pyramidal layer cells in the brain of Alzheimer's disease patients and controls.
Why is it important?
While interesting works in DNA methylation in AD have recently performed, none research has sub-selected sub-architectonic parts of the cerebral cortex of known vulnerability as the present work do by laser microdissection.
