    APOE expression and secretion are modulated by mitochondrial dysfunction

    Meghan E Wynne, Oluwaseun Ogunbona ... Victor Faundez
    Current models of Alzheimer's disease that put mitochondria as an endpoint of disease should be reconsidered because genetic defects affecting mitochondria by themselves can also regulate Alzheimer’s disease risk factor apolipoprotein E (APOE) expression and secretion.
