Entrez Gene Summary for BACE2 Gene

  • This gene encodes an integral membrane glycoprotein that functions as an aspartic protease. The encoded protein cleaves amyloid precursor protein into amyloid beta peptide, which is a critical step in the etiology of Alzheimer's disease and Down syndrome. The protein precursor is further processed into an active mature peptide. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2013]

GeneCards Summary for BACE2 Gene

BACE2 (Beta-Site APP-Cleaving Enzyme 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with BACE2 include down syndrome and alzheimer disease. Among its related pathways are Alzheimers Disease Pathway and Alzheimers disease. GO annotations related to this gene include aspartic-type endopeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is BACE1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for BACE2 Gene

  • Responsible for the proteolytic processing of the amyloid precursor protein (APP). Cleaves APP, between residues 690 and 691, leading to the generation and extracellular release of beta-cleaved soluble APP, and a corresponding cell-associated C-terminal fragment which is later released by gamma-secretase. It has also been shown that it can cleave APP between residues 671 and 672.
