Aberrant metabolism of the amyloid precursor protein (APP) is believed to be at least part of the pathogenic process in Alzheimer's disease. The carboxy-terminus of APP has been shown to interact with the Mint/X11 family of phosphotyrosine binding (PTB) domain-bearing proteins. It is via their PTB domains that the Mints/X11s bind to APP. Here we report the cloning of full-length mouse Mint2 and demonstrate that in primary cortical neurons, Mint2 and APP share highly similar distributions. Min...Expand abstract
