(2) (APPlication) The term has been shorthand for "application" in the IT community for a long time. However, it became popular with the consumer for mobile applications in smartphones and tablets after Apple debuted the iPhone 3G in 2008. It is just as correct to say "iPhone application" as it is "desktop computer app;" although app is shorter, and computer people love to abbreviate. See application and online app store.

(3) (APPlication) In the engineering world, an app can refer to a circuit design, using the word "application" in the context of purpose. For example, "high-voltage apps" means high-voltage circuit designs. The term predates mobile software apps by decades.

An alternative approach is given by activating the enzyme that cleaves one of the central proteins associated with AD pathogenesis, the amyloid precursor protein (APP), in a beneficial way: while beta- and gamma-secretase lead to production of neurotoxic Abeta peptides (Vassar et al.
The ADDF has limited interest in funding anti-amyloid approaches, including anti-amyloid aggregation programs, Abeta vaccine development and beta or gamma-secretase inhibition programs.
When the Abeta is not removed from the neuron, it destroys the host cell, rather than the plaques that clump up outside the cell.
Preclinical results show die treatment reduces the amount of plaque as much as the best drug candidates to manage Abeta amyloidosis, the company said, and did not lead to side effects.

Alpha motor neurons are responsible for conducting motor impulses at 70 to 120 m/s and Abeta or A-alpha fibers with a similar conduction speed are used in the afferent pathway of vibration sense and proprioception.
