APP分別被gamma-secretase 與 beta-secretase分解後 所在membrane內產生之
NICD 與 AICD 是為何物?

I don't think NICD is the cleavage product of gamma-secretase acting on APP.
NICD is Notch intracellular domain, which is liberated when gamma-secretase cleaves Notch1. NICD is a key molecule in cellular differentiation that translocates to the nucleus where it acts as a transcriptional coactivator.
AICD is APP intracellular domain. AICD results from predominant cleavage after leucine 49 of the A-beta domain of APP, a position that is analogous to the cleavage of Notch that would generated NICD.
So.... NICD and AICD are cleavage products of two different substrate of gamma-secretase.
Hope this helps, more information can be found in the following citation:
