X11α is a neuronal adaptor protein that interacts with the amyloid precursor protein (APP) via a centrally located phosphotyrosine binding (PTB) domain to inhibit production of Aβ peptide that is deposited in Alzheimer's disease brains. X11α also contains two C-terminal postsynaptic density-95, discs large, zona occludens 1 (PDZ) domains and we show here that via its PDZ domains, X11α interacts with a novel transcription factor, fibrinogen silencer binding protein (FSBP). Moreover, we demonstrate that an X11α/FSBP complex signals to the nucleus to repress glycogen synthase kinase-3β (GSK3β) promoter activity. GSK3β is a favoured candidate kinase for phosphorylating tau in Alzheimer's disease. Our findings reveal a new function for X11α that may impact on Alzheimer's disease pathogenesis.
