Bateman and fellow investigators found that the correlation between age and amyloid-beta turnover, as measured in 100 individuals ranging in age group from 60 to 87 years, was constant across amyloid-beta 38, 40 and 42. Steady isotope labelling kinetics was utilized to measure amyloid-beta turnover, with the participants finding a 9-hour infusion of [13C6]leucine to label newly synthesized proteins, including amyloid-beta 38, 40 and 42, which were after that sampled in the cerebral spinal fluid for 36 hours.
