DAG for GO:0034205id: GO:0034205

name: amyloid-beta formation
namespace: biological_process
def: "The generation of amyloid-beta by cleavage of the amyloid precursor protein (APP)." [GOC:mah]
comment: Note that this term does not fall under the general GO definition for biosynthetic processes, which is 'The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the formation of... ', because amyloid-beta can only be formed by the proteolysis of a larger molecule (see term definition). The word 'formation' is therefore used in place of biosynthesis. Also, note that this term refers to the production of the amyloid-beta polypeptide from the amyloid precursor protein (APP), and should be used to annotate e.g. secretases that cleave APP to form amyloid-beta. To annotate gene products involved in the formation of amyloid fibrils, please consider 'amyloid fibril formation' (GO:1990000).
