Transcript of Live-imaging in neurons to study Alzheimer's disease

Role of EHD proteins in Alzheimer's disease

Visualization of BACE1 trafficking after internalization
BACE1 transport in dendrites
BACE1 bidirectional transport in axons
Development of internalized BACE1 Assay
EHD1 and EHD3 as novel regulators of BACE1 trafficking
Unidirectional dendritic transport of internalized BACE1
Internalized BACE1 localization in neurons
Internalized BACE1 localizes in neuronal endosomes
Why BACE1 moves in one direction despite the microtubules mixed polarity in dendrites?!

Retrograde dendritic transport of internalized BACE1 require EHD1 and EHD3 activity
EHDs are required for BACE1 dynamics in axons
secretory vesicles dynamics is normal
EHDs are required for axonal localization of BACE1
EHDs colocalize with BACE1 and in APP CTFs in mouse hippocampal mossy fibers
