Das für ein breites Publikum geschriebene Werk zeigt die kausalen Verbindungen zwischen den messbaren Alterserscheinungen und den zugrundeliegenden Veränderungen in Genen, Zellen und in deren Kommunikationssystemen auf. Molekularbiologische Ansätze gewinnen in Medizin und Pharmakologie immer mehr an Bedeutung (Molekulare Medizin, distinctive treatments, genombasierte personalisierte Medizin), und Kenntnisse über kausale Mechanismen der Alterung werden die Vorsorge und Therapie zahlreicher Alterskrankheiten deutlich verbessern können.

Koo processing of APP. , 2004). Thus, cholesterol regulation of APP secretases may be more complex than previously understood. Evidence from a variety of in vitro and in vivo studies indicates that specialized membrane microdomains termed lipid rafts, which are rich in cholesterol and sphingolipids, might be the critical link between cholesterol levels and amyloidogenic processing of APP. Lipid rafts function in the trafﬁcking of proteins in the secretory and endocytic pathways in epithelial cells and neurons, and participate in a number of important biological functions (Simons and Toomre, 2000).
Proteolytic processing of APP. A) Schematic structure of APP is shown with Aβ domain shaded in red and enlarged. The major sites of cleavage by α-, β-, and γ -secretases are indicated along with Aβ numbering from the N-terminus of Aβ (Asp1). B) Non-amyloidogenic processing of APP refers to sequential processing of APP by membrane-bound α- and γ -secretases. α-secretase cleaves within the Aβ domain, thus precluding generation of intact Aβ peptide. The fates of N-terminally truncated Aβ (p3) and APP intracellular domain (AICD) are not fully resolved.
