    basic FUNCTION
  • inhibits the various processing of APP by blocking the access of alpha- and beta-secretases to APP
  • unlike ITM2B, ITM2C is a poor gamma-cleavage inhibitor

    INTERACTION
    DNA
    RNA
    small molecule
    protein
  • BACE1 and BRI3 co-localize and interact with each other via the cytosolic tail of BACE1
  • interacts with APP and serves as an endogenous negative regulator of Abeta production
