amyloid beta precursor protein

Gene Summary

Enables growth factor receptor binding activity and peptidase activator activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to metal ion; defense response to other organism; and positive regulation of MAPK cascade. Located in several cellular components, including astrocyte projection; axon; and rough endoplasmic reticulum. Used to study Alzheimer's disease. Biomarker of Alzheimer's disease; diabetic encephalopathy; hypertension; iron deficiency anemia; and middle cerebral artery infarction. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in APP-related cerebral amyloid angiopathy; Alzheimer's disease; Alzheimer's disease 1; cognitive disorder; and visual epilepsy. Orthologous to human APP (amyloid beta precursor protein). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
