    Abstract : Neuronal degeneration is a commanding event in Alzheimer's disease (AD). Neuronal loss is one of the major hallmarks and is frequently reported in regions with presence of neuritic plaques (NPs) and neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) The causative role of â-amyloid (Aâ) and tau protein in neurofibrillary pathology is controversial, and the main trigger for neurodegeneration in AD is still unknown.

The results presented in this thesis include an analysis of sex-biased genes encoded on the X and Y chromosomes of rodents. READ MORE
