Sevoflurane induced apoptosis and elevated levels of beta-site amyloid precursor protein-cleaving enzyme and Abeta in vitro and in vivo. The caspase inhibitor Z-VAD decreased the effects of sevoflurane on apoptosis and Abeta. Sevoflurane-induced caspase-3 activation was attenuated by the gamma-secretase inhibitor L-685,458 and was potentiated by Abeta. These results suggest that sevoflurane induces caspase activation which, in turn, enhances beta-site amyloid precursor protein-cleaving enzyme and Abeta levels.
