We studied the role of the amyloid precursor protein (APP) in ischemic brain damage using transgenic mice overexpressing APP. The middle cerebral artery (MCA) was occluded in FVB/N mice expressing APP695.SWE (Swedish mutation) and in nontransgenic littermates. Infarct volume (cubic millimeters) was assessed 24 hr later in thionin-stained ...More
