The amyloid-β protein precursor (AβPP) is a type I transmembrane protein that undergoes maturation during trafficking in the secretory pathway. Proper maturation and trafficking of AβPP are necessary prerequisites for AβPP processing to generate amyloid-β (Aβ), the core component of Alzheimer’s disease senile plaques. Recently, we reported that the glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored protein growth arrest-specific 1 (Gas1) binds to and interferes with the maturation and processing of AβPP. Gas1 expres…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
