NCSTN / Nicastrin Protein Description
Nicastrin, also known as NCSTN, is a single-pass type I membrane protein which belongs to the nicastrin family. Nicastrin was named after the Italian village Nicastro, reflecting the fact that Alzheimer's disease was described in 1963 after studying descendants of an extended family originating in the village of Nicastro that had Familial Alzheimer's Disease (FAD). Nicastrin is a protein that is part of the gamma secretase protein complex, which is one of the proteases involved in processing amyloid precursor protein (APP) to the short Alzheimer's disease-associated peptide amyloid beta. Nicastrin may represent a stabilizing cofactor required for the assembly of the gamma-secretase complex. The other proteins in the complex are presenilin, which is the catalytically active component of the complex, APH-1, and PEN-2. Nicastrin itself is not catalytically active, but instead promotes the maturation and proper trafficking of the other proteins in the complex, all of which undergo significant post-translational modification before becoming active in the cell. Nicastrin has also been identified as a regulator of neprilysin, an enzyme involved in the degradation of amyloid beta fragment.
