  1. This provides histochemical evidence to support a role of the neprilysin in amyloidogenesis of AD brain. The immunoreactive intensity was not strong but favors its pathological involvement.

  2. "Neprilysin is a protease that degrades Ab and is emerging as an important regulator of Ab accumulation. The study of neprilysin represents a novel approach towards understanding Alzheimer’s pathophysiology, and understanding its biology represents a growth area for research in AD."
