CD147

is a protein, a subunit of gamma-secretase. Only recently discovered, it is thought to regulate the production of the toxic beta-amyloid peptides. CD147 is expressed in many tissues and has many functions, including a neural function: when the CD147 gene is deleted in mice, the result is defective nervous system development, loss of working memory, spatial learning deficits, and disorientation.
