|Function||Regulator of gamma-secretase activity, which specifically activates the production of beta-amyloid protein (beta-amyloid protein 40 and beta-amyloid protein 42), without affecting the cleavage of other gamma-secretase targets such has Notch. The gamma-secretase complex is an endoprotease complex that catalyzes the intramembrane cleavage of integral membrane proteins such as Notch receptors and APP (beta-amyloid precursor protein). Specifically promotes the gamma-cleavage of APP CTF-alpha (also named APP-CTF) by the gamma-secretase complex to generate beta- amyloid, while it reduces the epsilon-cleavage of APP CTF-alpha, leading to a low production of AICD.|

Accumulation of neurotoxic amyloid-beta is a majorhallmark of Alzheimer disease (AD; MIM 104300). Formation ofamyloid-beta is catalyzed by gamma-secretase (see PSEN1; MIM104311), a protease with numerous substrates. PION, or GSAP,selectively increases amyloid-beta production through a mechanisminvolving its interaction with both gamma-secretase and itssubstrate, the amyloid-beta precursor protein (APP; MIM 104760)C-terminal fragment (APP-CTF) (He et al., 2010 [PubMed20811458]).
