β-Amyloid (1-40) is a primary protein in plaques found in the brains of patients with Alzheimer's disease.

In Vitro

β-Amyloid (1-40) and (1-42) are major components of senile plaque amyloids, are physiological peptides present in the brain, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and plasma. The levels of CSF β-Amyloid (1-40) and (1-42) show a U-shaped natural course in normal aging[1].Chronic infusion of beta-amyloid (1-40) for 14 days into the rat cerebroventricle decreased the activity of soluble protein kinase C (PKC) in the hippocampus. Subcellular translocation of PKC to membrane fraction in hippocampal slices of rats treated with beta-amyloid (1-40) is completely abolished under acute stimulation with 0.5 microM phorbol-dibutyrate (PDBu)[2].

In Vivo

Chronic infusion of β-Amyloid (1-40) into rat cerebroventricle leads to deficit in spatial and non-spatial memory formation[2]. Chronic treatment of β-Amyloid (1-40) does not change lever-pressing performance significantly, but performance declined significantly 30 days after termination of the chronic daily regimen. The soluble unaggregated form of β-Amyloid (1-40), injected into the dorsal hippocampus, does not appear to have behavioral effects on performance or short-term working memory in rats, but multiple repeat injections produced performance decrements several weeks later. Repeated injection of β-Amyloid (1-40) through indwelling cannulae shows promise for development of an animal model of Alzheimer's disease[3].

Animal Administration

Rats: HPLC buffer insures the β-Amyloid (1-40) does not aggregate in solution prior to injection, β-Amyloid (1-40) and vehicle are bilaterally infused into the hippocampus, 20 min before experimental sessions, in volumes of 1, 2 and 3 μL per side, at a rate of <1 μL/min. Different volumes of the 1 μM solution are used. Volumes (doses) are given in random order and at least three sham-injection sessions are interposed between β-Amyloid (1-40) or vehicle injections. All rats receive all doses of β-Amyloid (1-40) under the acute injection regimen[3].
