Gene: Bace1 (beta-secretase 1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Bace1
Name: beta-secretase 1
RGD ID: 2191
Description: Enables peptidase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to amyloid-beta; cellular response to metal ion; and detection of mechanical stimulus involved in sensory perception of pain. Located in several cellular components, including cytoplasmic vesicle; dendrite; and neuronal cell body. Used to study dementia. Biomarker of Alzheimer's disease; sensory peripheral neuropathy; and transient cerebral ischemia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease. Orthologous to human BACE1 (beta-secretase 1); PARTICIPATES IN Alzheimer's disease pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3,3',5-triiodo-L-thyronine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Previously known as: asp 2; ASP2; aspartyl protease 2; Bace; beta-site amyloid precursor protein cleaving enzyme 1; beta-site APP cleaving enzyme; beta-site APP cleaving enzyme 1; memapsin-2; membrane-associated aspartic protease 2
