26949937 miRNA-34a-mediated modulation of TREM2 may in part regulate the phagocytic response
26911435 Genome-wide association studies have identified variants of the gene that encodes triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells 2 (TREM2) as risk factors for non-familial Alzheimer disease (AD).
26758262 Our results corroborate and extend previous findings, concluding that the variant rs75932628-T (p.R47H) in TREM2 is not a risk factor for leucoaraiosis or Parkinson's disease in the Han Chinese population.
26754172 CSF concentrations of soluble TREM2 are higher in Alzheimer's disease than in controls
26704436 neither variant rs75932628 nor rs2234253 be a major susceptibility factor of sporadic Parkinson disease in Chinese Han population from Mainland China.
26694609 The selective expression of TREM2 on myeloid cells and microglia and its association with different forms of dementia indicate a contribution of TREM2 and mutations in TREM2 in common pathways of neurodegeneration. [REVIEW]
26651418 Variant p.R47H of TREM2 was not associated with Parkinson's disease
26414614 decreased TREM2 expression with CD33 suppression and elevated cortical TREM2 mRNA expression with amyloid pathology
26384438 study to determine soluble TREM-1 and TREM-2 levels in serum, and membrane-bound TREM-1 and TREM-2 on peripheral blood mononuclear cells of patients with pulmonary TB
26374899 data demonstrate that apoE-TREM2 interaction in microglia plays critical roles in modulating phagocytosis of apoE-bound apoptotic neurons and establish a critical link between two proteins whose genes are strongly linked to the risk for AD
