Soluble beta-amyloid leads to mitochondrial defects in amyloid precursor protein and tau transgenic mice," Neurodegenerative Diseases, vol.
From synaptic spines to nuclear signaling: nuclear and synaptic actions of the amyloid precursor protein.
One of its hallmarks is the build-up of an abnormal protein called amyloid beta (A-beta), which occurs when a normal protein, the amyloid precursor protein (APP, which is present in many body tissues, most notably the neurons) is abnormally cut by enzymes, and forms clumps called plaques in the spaces between brain cells.
The Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer's Network (DIAN) study, an international study of inherited forms of AD, is following members of families who have mutations in one of three genes: amyloid precursor protein, presenilin 1, or presenilin 2.
PKC inhibits the [beta] secretase that forms the toxic A[beta] from the amyloid precursor protein.
In tests using endothelial cells from blood vessels in the human brain along with observations in laboratory mice, the researchers discovered that inhibition of NO in the endothelium is associated with biochemical reactions that lead to increased production of amyloid precursor protein (APP), the raw material for amyloid plaques.
When nitric oxide levels are reduced in the body, the production of amyloid precursor protein (a component of the amyloid plaques found in the brains of Alzheimer's patients) increases.
Lipopolysaccharides stimulate certain inflammatory cytokines that are associated with microglial activation and altered processing of amyloid precursor protein.
It decreases the amount of plaque-forming beta-amyloid protein by changing the point at which gamma secretase cleaves the amyloid precursor protein.
In cases in which DNA sequencing detects a mutant amyloid precursor protein, protein analysis must be the definitive evidence.
There is compelling evidence that sAPPbeta, the ectodomain of amyloid precursor protein (APP) shed through beta secretase cleavage, is an important component in the pathogenesis of AD," said Joe Bertelsen, neuroscience product manager, Covance.
