ENZYME entry: EC 3.4.23.46

Accepted Name
Memapsin 2.
Alternative Name(s)
BACE1.
Beta-secretase.
Beta-site Alzheimer's amyloid precursor protein cleaving enzyme 1.
Beta-site APP-cleaving enzyme 1.
Membrane-associated aspartic protease 2.
Reaction catalysed
Broad endopeptidase specificity. Cleaves Glu-Val-Asn-Leu-|-Asp-Ala-Glu-Phe in the Swedish variant of Alzheimer's amyloid precursor protein
Comment(s)
  • Suggested to be the major 'beta-secretase' responsible for the cleavage of the beta-amyloid precursor protein to form the amyloidogenic beta-peptide that is implicated in the pathology of Alzheimer's disease.
  • Belongs to peptidase family A1.
