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.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22466571

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