  • Function
    Responsible for the proteolytic processing of the amyloid precursor protein (APP). Cleaves APP, between residues 690 and 691, leading to the generation and extracellular release of beta-cleaved soluble APP, and a corresponding cell-associated C-terminal fragment which is later released by gamma-secretase. It has also been shown that it can cleave APP between residues 671 and 672.
  • Tissue specificity
    Brain. Present in neurons within the hippocampus, frontal cortex and temporal cortex (at protein level). Expressed at low levels in most peripheral tissues and at higher levels in colon, kidney, pancreas, placenta, prostate, stomach and trachea. Expressed at low levels in the brain. Found in spinal cord, medulla oblongata, substantia nigra and locus coruleus. Expressed in the ductal epithelium of both normal and malignant prostate.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the peptidase A1 family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Undergoes autoproteolytic cleavage.
    Glycosylated.
  • Cellular localization
    Membrane. Golgi apparatus. Endoplasmic reticulum. Endosome. Cell surface.
