However, the relationship between cholesterol and A-beta metabolism is considerably more complex than simply correlating the absolute level of total cholesterol with APP metabolism. The physiological regulation of intracellular cholesterol levels is mediated by a network of genes involved in sterol homeostasis. For example, members of the ABCA and ABCG 40 Annapia Verri, Luigi Nespoli, Diego Franciotta et al. classes of ATP-binding cassette transporters are believed to act as critical gate keepers of cholesterol homeostasis.

More recently, five independent kindreds have been identified that contain a duplication of the APP locus in the absence of mental retardation and other aspects of DS (Rovelet-Lecrux, 2006). These families all exhibit aytosomal dominant early-onset AD with an average clinical age of onset of 52 years, and who exhibit abundant amyloid deposition in the parenchyma and cerebrovasculature. Taken together, these studies conclusively demonstrate that APP gene dose critically regulates the age of onset.
