  • Published 2012 in Trends in pharmacological sciences


Beta-secretase 1 (BACE1) is a central nervous system (CNS) aspartyl protease required for production of amyloid beta (Aβ) peptides. Brain-penetrant BACE1 inhibitors are central to test the 'amyloid hypothesis', which suggests that a reduction of Aβ species in the CNS would halt or even reverse Alzheimer's disease. Discovery of the iminoheterocycle class of… (More)
