Alzheimer's disease is characterized by beta-amyloid deposition in the brain. This peptide is derived by proteolytic cleavage from beta-amyloid precursor protein (APP), a highly glycosylated membrane glycoprotein containing both N- and O-glycans. There are three major isoforms of APP, which are derived by alternative splicing and contain 695, 751, or 770 amino acids. Since glycosylation can affect many properties of glycoproteins, we studied the role of N- and O-glycosylation in the synthesis… CONTINUE READING
