Alzheimer disease 3
Familial Alzheimer's disease is often characterized by an early (<60 years of age) and rapid deterioration of the central nervous system. The symptoms are caused by the abnormal buildup of senile plaques composed of the 42 residue amyloid-beta peptide. This peptide is the result of the amyloid precursor protein being cleaved by the presenilin-gamma-secretase complex. Recent studies have linked mutations in presenilin 1 (PS1) and presenilin 2 (PS2) to a rapid increase in plaque accumulation. PS1 and PS2 are integral membrane proteins that contain 6-8 transmembrane domains and are predominantly localized within the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi of neurons within the brain. Within the transmembrane regions of PS1 and PS2 there is over 60% homology, with the largest divergence found at the N-terminus and large loop region.
