Objective: Alzheimer�s disease (AD) diff ers from other forms of dementia in its relation to amyloid beta peptide (Abeta42). Abeta42, a proteolytic product of amyloid precursor proteins (APP), has a toxic eff ect on neuronal cells. Th is eff ect implies that protein expression is changed in neuronal cells by Abeta42, which provides a molecular marker for this disease. In the present study, we used the mice primary culture neurons and investigated the proteins in the supernatant aft er incubation with or without Abeta 42 . Methods: In view of the appearance of an acidic phospholipid (phosphatidylserine (PS)) on the outer plasma membrane of an apoptotic cell, we used PS as a probe and proteins bound to PS-coated magnetic nano-beads in a Ca 2+ -dependent manner were identifi ed using a proteomic approach. Results: Of a number of proteins identifi ed, we focused on annexin A5 and milk fat globule- EGF-factor 8 (MFG-E8) that is involved in the clearance of apoptotic cells. Both annexin A5 and MFG-E8 were found to be increased signifi cantly in the culture supernatant by Abeta42. Tg2576 mice (AD mouse model), which overexpress mutant human APP, showed signifi cant increase of annexin A5 in both the brain cortex and plasma, compared with control. Th e level of annexin A5 signifi cantly increased in a greater proportion of AD patients as compared to that in a control group ( p -value of less than 0.0001 in the logistic regression analysis). Conclusions: Both annexin A5 and MFG-E8 are novel plasma biomarker candidates for AD
