Additionally, experimental evidence suggests a central role for cellular cholesterol in amyloid-β protein precursor (AβPP) processing. The present study investigated whether brain capillary endothelial cells (BCEC; the anatomical basis of the BBB) are capable of endogenous AβPP synthesis and whether and to what extent AβPP synthesis and processing is under con…
