  1. To my knowledge, this is the first paper demonstrating the relationship between presenilin and inflammation, which might be associated with the paticular agressive nature of FAD caused by PS1 mutations. It seems, however, necessary and important to make a detailed comparison between PS-KO mice and FAD mutant PS-KI mice in order to obtain relevant insights into the pathogenic roles of PS mutations.
