Nicastrin expression in mouse peripheral tissues is not co-ordinated with presenilin and is high in muscle.


Nicastrin was the first binding partner of presenilin (PS) shown to be a critical component of the presenilin/gamma-secretase complex essential in development and differentiation, and in generation of Alzheimer's disease Abeta amyloid peptide. To investigate the function of this glycoprotein, we compared nicastrin and presenilin protein expression in… (More)
