Abstract Astrocytes associated with beta-amyloid (Abeta) accumulate in senile plaques of Alzheimer's disease (AD). To investigate the biological effects of Abeta/astrocyte interaction, we examined chemokine production by the human astrocytoma cell line U373MG stimulated with Abeta peptides. Northern blot analysis and specific immunoassays demonstrate that Abeta [1-42] and Abeta [25-35] induce mRNA expression and release of monocyte chemotactic protein (MCP)-1 but not of gamma-interferon inducible protein (IP)-10 by U373MG cells. The observation that Abeta induces astrocyte production of the potent microglia chemoattractant MCP-1 contributes to understanding mechanism of damage exerted by Abeta in AD senile plaques.
