The amyloid precursor protein (APP) is cleaved within the amyloid β-protein region by a putative APP secretase to release its extracellular portion. Gelatinase A, the matrix metalloproteinase MMP-2, possesses such APP secretase-like activity, effectively hydrolyzing also the synthetic amyloid β-protein fragment (10-20) at the normal processing site, the Lys16-Leu17 bond (Km approx. 0.13 mM).
