Title: “Why is a single molecule, BACE1, involved with multiple types of brain disorders?”

Abstract:
The protease β-site amyloid precursor protein (APP)-cleaving enzyme 1 (BACE1) is required for the production of the amyloid-β (Aβ) peptide, a molecule central to the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Moreover, with advanced technologies, we and others have identified additional substrates for BACE1 and found that BACE1 acting on different substrates has distinct roles in different types of brain disorders. In my talk, I will discuss BACE1 functions in health and a range of brain disorders as well as possible mechanisms of how BACE1 assumes these functions.
