Inhibition of histone deacetylation enhances the neurotoxicity induced by the C-terminal fragments of amyloid precursor protein.

The AICD (APP intracellular Domain) and C31, caspase-cleaved C-terminal fragment of APP, have been found in Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients' brains and have been reported to induce apoptosis in neuronal cells. In recent, the C-terminal fragments of amyloid precursor protein (APP-CTs) have been reported to form a complex with Fe65 and the histone… CONTINUE READING
