Cycle on Wheels: Is APP Key to the AppBp1 Pathway?
United States. In Austin Alzheimers Parkinsons Dis, 2013
Here we analyze the existing data in literature and hypothesize that the physiological function of the Amyloid Precursor Protein (APP) is activating the AppBp1 pathway and this function is gradually lost during the progression of AD pathogenesis.
Physiological genomics analysis for Alzheimer's disease.
Bangkok, Thailand. In Ann Indian Acad Neurol, 2013
Considering the results, the HADH2 gene on chromosome X, APBA1 gene on chromosome 9, AGER gene on chromosome 6, GSK3B gene on chromosome 3, CDKHR1 gene on chromosome 17, APPBP1 gene on chromosome 16, APBA2 gene on chromosome 15, GAL gene on chromosome 11, and APLP2 gene on chromosome 11 have the highest physiogenomics score (9.26) while the CASP3 gene on chromosome 4 and the SNCA gene on chromosome 4 have the lowest physiogenomics score (7.44).
Neddylation dysfunction in Alzheimer's disease.
Little Rock, United States. In J Cell Mol Med, 2012
Central to the neddylation pathway is the amyloid precursor protein (APP)-binding protein APP-BP1, which together with Uba3, plays an analogous role to the ubiquitin-activating enzyme E1 in nedd8 activation.
Basis for a ubiquitin-like protein thioester switch toggling E1-E2 affinity.
Memphis, United States. In Nature, 2007
Here we report the structural analysis of a trapped UBL activation complex for the human NEDD8 pathway, containing NEDD8's heterodimeric E1 (APPBP1-UBA3), two NEDD8s (one thioester-linked to E1, one noncovalently associated for adenylation), a catalytically inactive E2 (Ubc12), and MgATP.
