Caspase activation is known to be important in mediating Alzheimer's pathology. Here, we found that C-terminal fragment of APP released by caspase cleavage directly interact with PP2A thereby increasing tau phosphorylation. This event intimately connected with Aβ which enhances caspase cleavage. Our results suggest that caspase cleavage of APP plays a role as a mediator of Aβ-induced tau pathology.
