After washing 3 times for 10 min each in PBS, membranes were incubated with rabbit anti-human asynuclein, caspase-3, parkin, phospho-Akt, phospho-GSK3[beta], and phospho-Tau antibodies, respectively, at 1:1000 concentration each overnight at 4[degrees]C.
They also found that abnormalities associated with ApoE4 and AD, such as the creation of phospho-tau and amyloid-beta, could be prevented by increasing SirT1, and have identified drug candidates that exert the same effect.
It has been shown in cell cultures and in a number of mice models to reduce and normalize the synthesis of amyloid-[sz] precursor protein (APP) and A[sz], tau and phospho-tau as well as alpha-synuclein; proteins that are all elevated in the injured brain and that have all been shown to kill nerve cells.

The researchers found that the patients who later developed AD had reduced levels of the biomarker beta amyloid-42 (A(342) and elevated levels of the biomarkers Total tau (T-tau) and Phospho-tau (P-tau) at the time of the first test, compared to patients who did not develop AD.
