The critical commentaries following our review of the epigenetics of Alzheimer's disease (AD) amplify a number of key points with respect to the role of 1-carbon metabolism, the phenomenon of allele-specific methylation, the potentially critical explanatory link provided by epigenetic mechanisms for genome-wide association and large-scale gene expression array studies, and new therapeutic approaches afforded by epigenetic manipulation in Alzheimer's disease.
