Robust Cell-Type Specific Associations with Alzheimer’s Disease Within Excitatory and Inhibitory Neuronal Subclasses

Cortical neuron loss is a pathological hallmark of late-onset Alzheimer’s disease (AD). However, despite recent single-cell transcriptomic analyses of human AD brain tissue, it remains unclear which neuronal subtypes are most vulnerable to degeneration. Here we applied cell-type proportion estimation methods to multiple RNA sequencing (RNAseq) datasets derived from human postmortem brain to identify the neuronal subtypes most strongly associated with AD.
