However, 3. The Biology of the Presenilin Complexes 43 Figure 2. γ -Secretase components and the stepwise assembly and activation of the γ -secretase complex. Presenilin holoprotein (full-length) is rapidly degraded, whereas a fraction of presenilin is stabilized by binding to Nicastrin and Aph-1 (subcomplex). Subsequent binding of Pen-2 to the ternary complex induces the endoproteolysis of presenilin and confers γ -secretase activity. Cylindrical columns represent the putative transmembrane domains of each component.
A. Eight transmembrane model of presenilin. Two putative active site aspartates in TM6 and TM7 are marked. The location of the endoproteolytic cleavage site by “presenilinase activity” within the large cytoplasmic loop is indicated. NTF: aminoterminal fragment, CTF: carboxyterminal fragment. B. Several alternative models are reported in the literature and schematically represented here. are occasionally detected. In contrast, overexpression of PS in cultured cells results in the accumulation of full-length proteins without increasing NTF/CTF levels (De Strooper et al.
Elegans (Baumeister et al. 1997; Levitan et al. 1996). Additional accumulating evidence in the literature indicates that, in general, FAD-linked PS variants are associated with partial loss of functions as assessed in a variety of assays (Baki et al. 2004; Leissring et al. 2000; Marambaud et al. 2003; Nishimura et al. 1999). On the other hand, it is clear that all mutations increase the Aβ42/Aβ40 ratio. However since this reﬂects a decrease in Aβ40 and an increase in Aβ42, these results do not necessarily imply that absolute amounts of Aβ are elevated (Walker et al.
