Gene: APP (amyloid beta precursor protein) Homo sapiens
Symbol: APP
Name: amyloid beta precursor protein
Description: Exhibits several functions, including PTB domain binding activity; protein dimerization activity; and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including defense response to other organism; modulation of chemical synaptic transmission; and positive regulation of cellular metabolic process. Localizes to several cellular components, including the amyloid-beta complex; cytoplasmic vesicle; and dendrite. Colocalizes with several cellular components, including the cell body; low-density lipoprotein particle; and very-low-density lipoprotein particle. Implicated in APP-related cerebral amyloid angiopathy; Alzheimer's disease; Alzheimer's disease 1; cognitive disorder; and visual epilepsy. Biomarker of Alzheimer's disease; obesity; and periodontitis.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
