Aging is the strongest known risk factor for Alzheimer's disease (AD), the most common cause ofdementia in older individuals. However, effective AD therapies remain elusive, which underscores the need tobetter understand disease etiology and its co-occurrence with advanced age. Apolipoprotein E (apoE) is amajor lipid carrier in the brain that transports cholesterol and other lipids such as sulfatide (a key component ofmyelin) between brain cells. APOE polymorphic alleles are the main genetic determinants of AD risk (e.g.,APOE4 allele is the strongest genetic risk factor for AD).
