This interaction results in a reduction of Aβ levels in human neuroblastoma N2a cells and in PrP-/- mice. The regulatory role of PrPc on β-secretase cleavage of APP required the localization of PrPc to lipid rafts and was shown to be mediated by the N-terminal region of PrPc through glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). , 2007). PrP thus may regulate Aβ production, suggesting that it is protective in AD. A key issue in the interpretation of data produced in the studies discussed previously, and in all Aβ studies, is the heterogeneity of Aβ assemblies and their transient nature (Teplow, 2006).

The pair-of-sheets structure, showing the backbone of each β-strand as an arrow, with side chains protruding. The dry interface is between the two sheets, with the wet interfaces on the outside surfaces. Side chains Asn 2, Gln 4 and Asn 6 point inwards, forming the dry interface. The 21 screw axis of the crystal is shown as the vertical line. ” (From R. Nelson, M. R.  Balbirnie, A. O. Madsen, C. Riekel, R. Grothe, and D. Eisenberg. ” 2005.

The gene encoding tau is located on chromosome 17 and has four 31–32 amino acid C-terminal tandem repeats (Goedert 2003). The gene is composed of 16 exons, 11 of which are expressed in the central nervous system, and the pre-mRNA undergoes alternative splicing of exons 2, 3, and 10. Exons 2 and 3 each encode 29 amino acids. The inclusion of exon 2 is coupled to exon 3 inclusion, but not vice versa. Exon 10 encodes the 31 amino acids comprising the second of the four microtubulebinding domains. Alternative splicing of exon 10 results in four-repeat (4R) tau or 3R tau.
