Table 2 Co-localization of the S655 phosphomutants with the lysosomal marker cathepsin D.

From: Retrieval of the Alzheimer's amyloid precursor protein from the endosome to the TGN is S655 phosphorylation state-dependent and retromer-mediated

  Parameters of APP-GFP/Cat D co-localization
APP-GFP % Vesicular co-loc. % Co-loc. coefficient
Wt 5.0 ± 0.5 6.4 ± 0.7
S655A 9.6 ± 0.4***/+++ 10.2 ± 0.8***/+++
S655E 3.1 ± 0.3+++ 3.6 ± 0.0*/+++
  1. The number of APP-GFP/cathepsin D co-localizing vesicles was scored and expressed as percentage of APP-GFP-containing vesicles ("Vesicular co-loc."). The co-localization coefficients ("Co-loc coefficient") represent the relative percentage between the number of APP-GFP/cathepsin D co-localizing pixels and the total number of pixels of the APP-GFP channel, upon single cell delimitation. Values are mean ± SEM (n = 20). (*), S655 mutant vs Wt data; (+), S655A vs S655E data. *, p < 0.05; ***/+++, p < 0.001.
