• immunoblotting of of cortical and hippocampal extracts from transgenic mice under conditions that distinguish mouse and human full-length PSEN1 and its endoproteolytic derivatives demonstrates failure of the transgenic protein to undergo endoproteolysis and, instead, accumulation of the full-length mutant human protein in the brain
• endoproteolytic cleavage products of endogenous mouse PSEN1 are 70-90% less abundant in brains of transgenic than of wild-type mice; however, failure of its cleavage does not result in accumulation of the full-length mouse protein
