Abstract: The accumulation of amyloid-β protein precursor (AβPP) is related to the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD); however, the underlying mechanism is still unclear. The abnormal interactions of AβPP with metal ions such as iron are implicated in the process of oxidative stress in AD brains. In this study, we found that the overexpression of wild-type human AβPP695 decreased the iron content and increased the oxidative stress in neuroblastoma SH-SY5Y cells. The catalase activity of stably transfected cells ov…
