Presenilin-1 is involved in intramembrane proteolysis of various proteins, but its intracellular site of action has remained elusive. Here, we determined by quantitative immunogold-electron microscopy that presenilin-1 in Chinese hamster ovary cells is present in pre-Golgi compartments as well as at the plasma membrane and endosomes. Notably, a high(More)
Processing of the amyloid precursor protein (APP) leads to the production of amyloid-beta (Abeta), the major component of extracellular plaques in the brains of Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients. Presenilin-1 (PS-1) plays a key role in the final step of Abeta formation, the gamma-secretase cleavage. Previously, we showed that PS-1 is retained in pre-Golgi(More)
A 20-months-old girl developed a cough and became drowsy after drinking lamp oil. In the Emergency Ward, her oxygen saturation was 85%. The day after admission to hospital she showed a clinical and radiological picture of chemical pneumonia. After 3 days the patient could be discharged in good condition. The most important symptoms after the ingestion of(More)
