Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common neurodegenerative disease in the elderly and the leading cause of dementia in humans. Evidence shows that cellular trafficking and recycling machineries are associated with AD risk. A recent study found that the coat protein complex I (COPI)–dependent trafficking in vivo could significantly reduce amyloid plaques in the cortex and hippocampus of neurological in the AD mouse models and identified 12 single-nucleotide polymorphisms in COPI genes to be significantly associated with increased AD risk using 6,795 samples. Here, we used a large-scale GWAS dataset to investi...
