My research focuses on several pathological aspect of Alzheimer’s diseases (AD), including biological functions of β-amyloid cleaving enzyme 1 (BACE1) and dystrophic neurites (DNs). Our group was the first to report that BACE1 activity is naturally inhibited by a protein called reticulon 3 (RTN3). In line with this finding, we have elucidated that BACE1 protein level and its activity are enhanced in RTN3 deficient condition (Shi & Ge et. al., 2014). Our lab also determined that RTN3 plays another roles in AD by formation of DNs surrounding amyoid palque. Recently I have discovered that such RTN3 mediated DNs in AD patient’s brain are formed by clustering of tubular endoplasmic reticulum (ER) (Sharoar et. al., 2016). This is the first report in AD research field showing that tubular ER constitutes a pathological feature of AD that contributes to cognitive impairment.
