  • A panel of GICs lines was treated with various concentrations of γ secretase inhibitors BMS-708163. Cells were treated with increasing concentrations of γ secretase inhibitors in triplicate wells for 72 hours, and cell viability was assessed by CellTiter-Blue assay as described in Materials and Methods. The results shown are of a single experiment with three independent replicates cell viability was measured by CellTiter-Blue assay. The graph depicts cell viability at 72 hours. Cell viability in the vehicle control was considered as to be 100%.

  • Aβ40 inhibition by γ-secretase inhibitors, DAPT and BMS-708163 (BMS). The amount of Aβ40 and Aβ42 in PS1-WT neurons treated with DMSO was defined as 1.0. *P < 0.05, as determined by Steel's test in comparison to PS1-G378E neurons treated with DMSO. Four independent experiments, each time in triplicates were performed (n = 4). Mean ± SD.

    Nuclear targeting of anMan-containing HS degradation products is suppressed by β-secretase inhibition in WT and Tg2576 MEFs and by γ-secretase inhibition in WT but not in Tg2576 MEFs. A-H, representative immunofluorescence images of wild-type MEF cells (A-D) and Tg2576 cells (E-H) treated with 100 nm β-inhibitor (A, B, E, and F) or 10 nM BMS-708163 (C, D, G, and H) for 48 h followed by treatment with 1 mm ascorbate for 1 h (B, D, F, and H) and then stained with DAPI and mAb AM.
