Is it the one on neuronal cell adhesion molecule?  I think that this is another case of where oxidation damages a molecule necessary for brain function.

The involvement of cleavage of neural cell adhesion molecule in neuronal death under oxidative stress conditions in cultured cortical neurons.

Damage to this molecule and proteins damages synapses and limits communications between neurons and is one of earliest problems in Alzheimer's disease.
