|Synonyms||AD3, PS1, PSNL1|
|Function||Probable catalytic subunit of the gamma-secretase complex, an endoprotease complex that catalyzes the intramembrane cleavage of integral membrane proteins such as Notch receptors and APP (beta-amyloid precursor protein). Requires the other members of the gamma-secretase complex to have a protease activity. May play a role in intracellular signaling and gene expression or in linking chromatin to the nuclear membrane. Stimulates cell-cell adhesion though its association with the E-cadherin/catenin complex. Under conditions of apoptosis or calcium influx, cleaves E-cadherin promoting the disassembly of the E-cadherin/catenin complex and increasing the pool of cytoplasmic beta-catenin, thus negatively regulating Wnt signaling. May also play a role in hematopoiesis.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Golgi apparatus membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cell surface. Cell membrane. Note=Bound to NOTCH1 also at the cell surface. Colocalizes with CDH1/2 at sites of cell-cell contact. Colocalizes with CTNNB1 in the endoplasmic reticulum and the proximity of the plasma membrane. Also present in azurophil granules of neutrophils. Colocalizes with UBQLN1 in the cell membrane and in cytoplasmic juxtanuclear structures called aggresomes (PubMed:21143716).|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in a wide range of tissues including various regions of the brain, liver, spleen and lymph nodes|

Presenilin (PS) facilitates gamma-secretase cleavage of the beta-amyloid precursor protein and the intramembraneous cleavage of Notch1 (1). Presenilin (PS) is essential for the gamma-cleavage required for the generation of the C terminus of amyloid beta-protein (Abeta). The discovery that a deficiency of presenilin 1 (PS1) decreases the production of amyloid beta-protein (Abeta) identified the presenilins as important mediators of the gamma-secretase cleavage of beta-amyloid precursor protein (APP). It has been shown that two conserved transmembrane (TM) aspartates in PS1 are critical for Abeta production, providing evidence that PS either functions as a required diaspartyl cofactor for gamma-secretase or is itself gamma-secretase. Presenilin 2 (PS2) shares substantial sequence and possibly functional homology with PS1. It has been shown that the two TM aspartates in PS2 are also critical for gamma-secretase activity, providing further evidence that PS2 is functionally homologous to PS1 (2). Phosphorylation at serine 310 by PKACa has been linked to its proteolytic processing and apoptosis regulation (3). Heterogenous proteolytic processing generates N-terminal (NTF) and C-terminal (CTF) fragments of 35 kDa and 20 kDa respectively. During apoptosis, CTF is further cleaved by caspase-3 to produce PSI-CTF12 fragment.
