Unresolved by this model is how APP is initially sorted into a particular class of vesicles. , 2001). This finding led to the suggestion that not only is APP required for the delivery of the enzymatic machinery necessary for Aβ production, but Aβ generation also occurs enroute from the cell body to the nerve terminals within the transport cargo that is carried by APP. , 2005). , 2005). The latter argue that perturbations of axonal transport during aging may predispose to the development of AD pathology.

It is unusual to find charged amino acids within transmembrane sequences, but these two aspartates are completely conserved in PSs from all species. PS in which the aspartyl residues are mutated do not undergo endoproteolysis, cause accumulation of C83/C99 fragments, and reduce p3/Aβ production. Although the sequences around the two aspartates, YD and GLGD, do not fit with the motifs of canonical aspartic proteases (D(T/S)G(T/S)), the active site of PS is similar to the catalytic sites of the bacterial type-4 prepilin peptidase (TFPP) (Steiner et al.
