alpha-Secretase cleaves the full-length Alzheimer's amyloid precursor protein (APP) within the amyloid beta peptide sequence, thus precluding amyloid formation. The resultant soluble truncated APP is constitutively secreted. This nonamyloidogenic processing of APP is increased on stimulation of the phospholipase C/protein kinase C pathway by phorbol esters.(More)
The aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) is a ligand-activated transcription factor that plays multiple roles in regulation of immune and inflammatory responses. The ability of certain AhR ligands to induce regulatory T cells (Tregs) has generated interest in developing AhR ligands for therapeutic treatment of immune-mediated diseases. To this end, we designed a(More)
