Presenilin 1 (PS1) is a component of the γ-secretase complex that cleaves a variety of type I membrane proteins, including the β-amyloid precursor protein (β-APP), Notch, and neuronal (N)- and epithelial (E)-cadherins. N-cadherin is an essential adhesion molecule that forms a complex with, and is cleaved by, PS1/γ-secretase and β-catenin in the plasma(More)
Calsenilin, a neuronal calcium binding protein that has been shown to have multiple functions in the cell, interacts with presenilin 1 (PS1) and presenilin 2 (PS2), represses gene transcription and binds to A-type voltage-gated potassium channels. In addition, increased levels of calsenilin are observed in the brains of Alzheimer's disease and epilepsy(More)
