Peptides containing the RERMS sequence of amyloid beta/A4 protein precursor bind cell surface and promote neurite extension.


Amyloid beta/A4 protein precursor (APP) is secreted into medium by most cultured cells and can function as an autocrine factor. To study the biological function of secreted forms of APP (sAPP) on neurons, we used a clonal CNS neuronal line, B103, which does not synthesize detectable levels of APP. B103 cells transfected with APP construct developed neurites… (More)
