Alzheimer disease (AD) has been linked with mutations in four genes that are situated on chromosomes 1, 14, 19 and 21. Although Alzheimer disease appears to be caused by mutations in genes on chromosomes 14 and 21, an interesting association to the APOE gene has been linked with Alzheimer disease.

Professor Donna Wilcock discusses the late-onset gene for Alzheimer's disease, ApoE4, which increases the risk of developing the disease.
Individuals with two copies of APOE4, have a dramatically increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
Matt Ridley talks about chromosome 19, APOE gene and susceptibility to Alzheimer's.
Professor Kenneth Kosik describes the relationship between the amyloid precursor protein (APP) and Alzheimer’s disease. APP mutations are linked to early-onset Alzheimer’s disease.
Professor Donna Wilcock discusses late-onset Alzheimer's disease, which involves the clearance and/or production of the amyloid beta protein.
Genes that can cause neurofibrillary tangles and amyloid plaques are strongly associated with Alzheimer's disease.
Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive brain disorder that causes a gradual and irreversible loss of higher brain functions, including memory, language skills, and perception of time and space,
Professor Donna Wilcock discusses early-onset Alzheimer's disease, which can reach an advanced stage by the age of 50 or 60 years.
