behavior/neurological
• mice consume food slower in a new environment than Tg(GFAP-APOE_i4)#Hol Apoetm1Unc/Apoetm1Unc and wild-type mice
• mice require more time to habituate to a novel environment compared to wild-type mice
• mice are less reluctant than wild-type mice to move into an open area
• at 14 to 17 months of age, mice perform better than Tg(GFAP-APOE_i4)#Hol Apoetm1Unc/Apoetm1Unc and wild-type mice in a rotating holeboard test
• mice exhibit increased protected risk assessment behaviors in an elevated plus maze compared to wild-type mice
• compared to wild-type mice
• mice spend less time than wild-type mice in the center of an open field
• mice exhibit increased numbers of fine movement (not related to ambulation) compared to wild-type mice

nervous system
• in vitro, neuron outgrowth is faster than in Apoetm1Unc/Apoetm1Unc Tg(GFAP-APOE_i4)22Hol neurons
• in vitro, neurite length is longer than in Apoetm1Unc/Apoetm1Unc Tg(GFAP-APOE_i4)22Hol neurons
• however, neurite outgrowth rate is equivalent to in Apoetm1Unc/Apoetm1Unc Tg(GFAP-APOE_i4)22Hol neurons when neurons are treated with RAP or anti-LRP IgG
• the ratio of lipid to Apoe in HDL particles secreted from astrocytes is lower than in wild-type astrocytes but higher than in Apoetm1Unc homozygotes
