  1. This is the latest paper in a series of studies looking at the modifying effect of LR11/SorLA on APP processing. Despite some differences to the previous paper by Andersen and coworkers, this study clearly highlights that increases in LR11/SorLA expression reduce Aβ generation. In further studies, it will be interesting to learn more about the underlying molecular mechanisms and the suitability of LR11 as a drug target.
