Rectal prolapse: diagnosis and clinical management

The pathophysiology of this disabling remains to be doubtful and its scientific and instrumental diagnostic overview should be clarified. the ideal surgical or scientific method is far debated and hasn't ever been definitively acknowledged. The rarity of the situation prevents randomised managed trials from being performed in one establishment, so the reviews of remarkable leaders during this box are rather very important.

Aph-1 is not markedly influenced by PS depletion (Lee et al. 2002; Gu et al. 2003). In the absence of Nct, PS and Pen-2 are destabilized (Chung and Struhl 2001; Edbauer et al. 2002; Hu et al. 2002; Steiner et al. 2002). The loss of Aph-1a results in decreased levels of PS, mature Nct and Pen-2. In addition to the decline in PS fragments and mature Nct levels, the loss of Pen-2 leads to the accumulation of full-length PS and immature Nct (Francis et al. 2002; Luo 2003; Takasugi et al. 2003). Apparently, immature Nct and Aph-1 form an intermediate complex (subcomplex) in the ER prior to the binding of PS and Pen-2 (Hu and Fortini 2003; La Voie et al.

Overall, these studies suggest a hypothetical sequence for the assembly of the complex (Fig. 3). First, immature Nct and Aph-1 form a subcomplex in the ER that binds and stabilizes full-length PS. Incorporation of Pen-2 into the PS/Nct/Aph-1 ternary complex stabilizes the whole complex and results in PS endoproteolysis, and activation of the γ -secretase complex (Takasugi et al. 2003). Nct is extensively 44 Tomoko Wakabayashi, Takeshi Iwatsubo and Bart De Strooper glycosylated, but inhibitors of glycosylation do not interfere with complex assembly or γ -secretase activity (Herreman et al.

2003). Nct is extensively 44 Tomoko Wakabayashi, Takeshi Iwatsubo and Bart De Strooper glycosylated, but inhibitors of glycosylation do not interfere with complex assembly or γ -secretase activity (Herreman et al. 2003). The stoichiometry of the γ -secretase components is still under discussion. The sum of the molecular weight of the individual subunits is 200–250 kDa. The higher molecular weight estimates reported in the literature suggest that either the complex forms multimers or additional proteins are in the complex.
