A novel defense mechanism that is activated on amyloid-beta insult to mediate cell survival: role of SGK1-STAT1/STAT2 signaling.

Cell Death Differ., Jul 17, 2009

Amyloid-beta (Abeta) is known to induce apoptotic cell death and its underlying mechanism has been studied extensively, but the endogenous protection mechanism that results from Abeta insult is less known. In this study, we have found that Abeta(1-42) produced a dose-dependent decrease in cell viability and dose-dependent increase in apoptotic cell death in PC12 cells. Meanwhile, Abeta(1-42) (0.1 muM) increased the phosphorylation of serum- and glucocorticoid-inducible kinase1 (SGK1) at Ser-78 specifically.
