Protein

Beta-secretase 1

Gene

BACE1

Organism
Cavia porcellus (Guinea pig)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 5 out of 5-Experimental evidence at transcript leveli

Functioni

Responsible for the proteolytic processing of the amyloid precursor protein (APP). Cleaves at the N-terminus of the A-beta peptide sequence, between residues 671 and 672 of APP, leads 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 (By similarity).By similarity

Catalytic activityi

Broad endopeptidase specificity. Cleaves Glu-Val-Asn-Leu-|-Asp-Ala-Glu-Phe in the Swedish variant of Alzheimer's amyloid precursor protein.

Enzyme regulationi

Inhibited by RTN3 and RTN4.By similarity

Acetylated in the endoplasmic reticulum at Lys-123, Lys-247, Lys-251, Lys-257, Lys-271, Lys-272, and Lys-279. Acetylation by NAT8 and NAT8B is transient and deacetylation probably occurs in the Golgi. Acetylation regulates the maturation, the transport to the plasma membrane, the stability and the expression of the protein (By similarity).By similarity

Links to similar proteins from the UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef) at 100%, 90% and 50% sequence identity:
100%UniRef100 combines identical sequences and sub-fragments with 11 or more residues from any organism into one UniRef entry.
90%UniRef90 is built by clustering UniRef100 sequences that have at least 90% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence (a.k.a seed sequence).
50%UniRef50 is built by clustering UniRef90 seed sequences that have at least 50% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence in the cluster.
