This study was performed to characterize the contributions of APP, sAPPα, LRP, and RAP on neurite outgrowth. Our data reveal that sAPPα alters neuronal morphology, and that ERK modulates RAP effects on neurite outgrowth, especially in the absence of APP. The results suggest that successful AD therapies should preserve protein interactions in order to sustain the synaptic connections underlying memory.
