The sequential processing of the familial disease gene product amyloid beta precursor protein (AbetaPP) by beta- and gamma-secretases generates amyloid beta, which is considered to be the pathogenic factor of Alzheimer's disease, and the AID peptide (AbetaPP intracellular domain). The AID peptide acts as a positive regulator of apoptosis and modulates(More)
The amyloid-beta protein precursor (AbetaPP) is a type I transmembrane molecule that undergoes several finely regulated cleavage events. The physiopathological relevance of AbetaPP derives from the fact that its aberrant processing strongly correlates with the onset of Alzheimer's disease (AD). AD is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by neuronal(More)
Numerous signaling molecules associate with lipid rafts, either constitutively or after engagement of surface receptors. One such molecule, phospholipase Cgamma-1 (PLCgamma1), translocates from the cytosol to lipid rafts during T-cell receptor (TCR) signaling. To investigate the role played by lipid rafts in the activation of this molecule in T cells, an(More)
We investigated the structural requirements for c-Cbl-mediated inhibition of Ag receptor-induced PLCgamma1 activation. Analysis of site-specific c-Cbl mutants indicated that tyrosine phosphorylation of c-Cbl was required for down-regulation of the PLCgamma1/Ca2+ pathway. Coprecipitation experiments indicated that c-Cbl and PLCgamma1 constitutively interact(More)
The cytoplasmic tail of the beta-amyloid precursor protein (APP) contains a Y(682)ENPTY(687) sequence through which APP associates with phosphotyrosine binding (PTB) domain containing proteins in a tyrosine phosphorylation-independent manner. We have recently found that tyrosine phosphorylation of APP-Y(682) promotes docking of Shc proteins that modulate(More)
The familial Alzheimer's disease gene product amyloid beta protein precursor (A beta PP) is sequentially processed by beta- and gamma-secretases to generate the A beta peptide. Although much is known about the biochemical pathway leading to A beta formation, because extracellular aggregates of A beta peptides are considered the cause of Alzheimer's disease,(More)
The oncoprotein 70Z/3 Cbl signals in an autonomous fashion or through blockade of endogenous c-Cbl, a negative regulator of signaling. The mechanism of 70Z/3 Cbl-induced signaling was investigated by comparing the molecular requirements for 70Z/3 Cbl- and TCR-induced phospholipase C gamma 1 (PLC gamma 1) activation. 70Z/3 Cbl-induced PLC gamma 1 tyrosine(More)
