Technical Data
APH1A, ID (Gamma-secretase Subunit APH-1A, APH-1a, Aph-1alpha, Presenilin-stabilization Factor, PSF, CGI-78, UNQ579/PRO1141)
APH1 is an essential subunit of the gamma-secretase complex, an endoprotease complex that catalyzes the intramembrane cleavage of integral proteins such as Notch receptors and APP (beta-amyloid precursor protein). The gamma-secretase complex is minimally composed of a presenilin homodimer (PSEN1 or PSEN2), nicastrin (NCSTN), APH1 (APH1A or APH1B) and PEN2, although other components may exist. APH1 probably represents a stabilizing cofactor for the presenilin homodimer that promotes the formation of a stable complex. APH1 is widely expressed in leukocytes, lung, placenta, small intestine, liver, kidney, spleen thymus, skeletal muscle, heart and brain.
