Technical Data
Alzheimer Precursor Protein A4
Deposits of amyloid protein in senile plaques near nerve processes are found in the brains of aged humand and cases of Alzheimer's Disease. The principle component of this extracellular amyloid is beta/A4, a 4 kDa peptide derived from a larger amyloid precursor protein (APP), which is widely expressed in the brain and body. The creation, transport and function of these proteins are currently under investigation.

Suitable for use in Immunofluorescence, Immunohistochemistry and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Immunohistochemistry: 5-10ug/ml on 4% paraformaldehyde/15% picric acid perfused and fixed rat spinal cord. Also good for paraffin-embeddedd tissues at 1:10- 1:20.
Western Blot: 10ug/ml under reducing conditions.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
