We determine the structure of the center and the trace space of the centrally extended preprojective algebra of an ADE quiver, introduced by the first and the third authors in math/0503393. It turns out that this structure has a mysterious relationship to the structure of the maximal nilpotent subalgebra of the corresponding simple Lie algebra.
