APEX1

(redirected from APE1)

APEX1

A gene on chromosome 14q11.2 that encodes a major apurinic/apyrimidinic (AP) endoDNAase, which is involved in the DNA base excision repair (BER) pathway of DNA lesions induced by oxidative and alkylating agents, and in the redox regulation of transcriptional factors.

Some of the potential dementia fighters now under review in NIH-funded research labs include saracatinib, a cancer drug that blocks Fyn, which is an enzyme associated with Alzheimer; microtubule stabilizing chemicals, which could help researchers get other useful drugs past the barrier that keeps most drugs out of the brain; MW181, a drug that fights brain inflammation; APE1, an enzyme that helps brain cells repair DNA; and Citalopram, an antidepressant already on the market that might keep beta-amyloid plaques from coating neurons.
