Beta-secretase (BACE) is an aspartic-acid protease important in the formation of myelin sheaths in peripheral nerve cells. The transmembrane protein contains two active site aspartate residues in its extracellular protein domain and may function as a dimer. Alzheimer's disease (AD) is caused by aggregates of the amyloid peptide (Abeta), which is generated by cleavage of the Abeta protein precursor (APP) by beta-secretase (BACE-1) followed by gamma-secretase. BACE-1 cleavage is limiting for the production of Abeta, Drugs to block this enzyme (BACE inhibitors) prevent the build up of beta-amyloid and may help slow or stop Alzheimers disease.
