Detrimental effect of genetic inhibition of B-site APP-cleaving enzyme 1 on functional outcome after controlled cortical impact in young adult mice.


β-Amyloid (Aβ) peptides, most notably associated with Alzheimer's disease, have been implicated in the pathogenesis of secondary injury after traumatic brain injury (TBI). A prior study has demonstrated that blocking the β-site amyloid precursor protein (APP)-cleaving enzyme 1 (Bace1) required for production of Aβ from APP improved functional and histologic… (More)
