Mutagenesis studies were conducted to explore γ-secretase cleavage specificity and modulation. Elongation of the distal juxtamembrane domain changes cleavage specificity. The K28E mutation at the proximal juxtamembrane domain changes γ-secretase cleavage specificity and modulator pharmacology. Thus, we have identified critical determinants in the proximal and distal juxtamembrane domains of the APP C99 substrate which differentially affect γ-secretase cleavage specificity and modulator pharmacology. Modulation of substrate binding could be a potential mechanism of action for γ-secretase modulators.
