Abstract

Biochemical and genetic data suggest that the Apoa2c allele of the apolipoprotein A-II gene causes severe senile amyloidosis (AApoAII) in SAMP1, a mouse model for accelerated senescence. We analyzed the effects of replacement ofApoa2c in SAMP1 mice with non-amyloidogenic Apoa2b on amyloidosis, lipoprotein metabolism, and progression of senescence using a congenic strain, P1.R1-Apoa2b, which has the Apoa2b chromosome region of SAMR1 in the genome of SAMP1. Age-associated amyloid deposition was not observed, but plasma concentrations of apoA-II protein and HDL-cholesterol decreased with age in P1.R1-Apoa2b. P1.R1-Apoa2b showed lower scores of senescence than did SAMP1. However, the life span and mortality rate doubling time were similar in P1.R1-Apoa2b and SAMP1. These results suggest that replacement of Apoa2c with non-amyloidogenic Apoa2b does not rescue SAMP1 mice from a short life span and accelerated mortality.
