Studies with in-vitro-cultured neurons treated with amyloid-beta (A beta) peptides demonstrated neuronal loss by apoptosis that is due, at least in part, to the perturbation of intracellular Ca(2+) homeostasis. In addition, it was shown that an endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-specific apoptotic pathway mediated by caspase-12, which is activated upon the perturbation of ER Ca(2+) homeostasis, may contribute to A beta toxicity. To elucidate the involvement of deregulation of ER Ca(2+) homeostasis in… CONTINUE READING
