Normal proteolytic processing of the presenilins.


The majority of familial Alzheimer's disease (AD) cases are linked to mutations of the presenilin 1 and 2 (PS1, PS2) genes on chromosomes 14 and 1, respectively (1-3). PS1 and PS2 are about 67% identical in amino acid sequence. Based on hydrophobicity analysis, the presenilins are predicted to have multiple transmembrane domains. Structural analysis (see… (More)
