Mutant presenilins cause early-onset of familial Alzheimer's disease and render cells vulnerable to apoptosis. Calsenilin/DREAM/KChIP3 is a multifunctional calcium-binding protein that interacts with presenilin and mediates calcium-mediated apoptosis. In the present study, we report that the calsenilin-mediated apoptosis is regulated by presenilin. The… CONTINUE READING
