Sortilin is the co-receptor of p75NTR which signals the cell death induced by Aβ and proneurotrophins. We found that sortilin is increased in the AD brain and up-regulated by Aβ and pro-brain-derived neurotrophic factor (proBDNF). Aβ-induced upregulation of sortilin is mediated by p75NTR and the down-streaming RhoA-ROCK signaling pathway. The Aβ/Sortilinp/75NTR signaling may play a role in the pathogenesis of AD.
