BACKGROUND Alzheimer's disease (AD) is characterized by cerebral deposition of beta-amyloid (Abeta) peptides. Abeta is released from ectodomain cleaved amyloid precursor protein (APP) via intramembranous proteolysis by gamma-secretase, a complex consisting of presenilin and a few other proteins. p23/TMP21, a member of the p24 family type I transmembrane(More)
The vast majority of mammalian genes are interrupted by non-coding segments of DNA termed introns. Introns are spliced out of RNA transcripts as lariat structures, and then are typically debranched and rapidly degraded. Here, we described an unusual spliced intron from the constant region of the T cell receptor-beta (TCR-beta) locus that is relatively(More)
