Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified E B
b-secretase, also called BACE (b-site of APP cleaving enzyme), is an aspartic-acid protease important in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease and in the formation of myelin sheaths in peripheral nerve cells. BACE1, also known as memapsin-2, is the major b-secretase for generation of the 40 or 42 amino-acid-long b-amyloid peptides that aggregate in the brain of Alzheimer's patients. Extracellular cleavage of APP by BACE1 releases a soluble extracellular fragment and is followed by APP cleavage within its transmembrane domain by g-secretase. The second cleavage releases the intracellular domain of APP and b-amyloid.
The immature form of BACE1 contains an N-terminal signal sequence (residues 121) followed by a large catalytic domain, a single transmembrane domain (residues 461477), and a short cytoplasmic domain (residues 478501). The signal sequence (1-21) is cleaved from the immature form, yielding the proBACE1 protein, which starts at residue 22. The proBACE1 protein is modified by cleavage of 12 N-terminal residues (aa 22-45), producing the mature BACE1 protein.
