The purpose of my study is to examine the role of the APP gene in Alzheimer's Disease. Also this study intends to explore the interactions between the APP, PSEN1, and PSEN2 genes in the molecular pathways related to the Alzheimer's disease . My central theme of research is to decipher the molecular evolution of the APP gene and utilize the phylogenetic analyses to examine specific molecular domains involved in the molecular pathways related to Alzheimer's disease . Current research indicates the role of several types of mutations discovered in the APP gene related to disease. My study intends to look at the mutations of the APP gene and also the interactions between the APP, PSEN1, and PSEN2 genes.
