APP, CT (Amyloid beta A4 Protein, ABPP, APPI, Alzheimer Disease Amyloid Protein, Cerebral Vascular Amyloid Peptide, CVAP, PreA4, Protease Nexin-II, PN-II, A4, AD1)
Description:
Accumulation of the amyloid-b peptide (Ab) in the cerebral cortex is a critical event in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease. The beta amyloid protein precursor (APP) is cleaved by beta secretase, producing a soluble derivative of the protein and a membrane anchored 99aa C-terminal fragment (C99). The C99 fragment serves as substrate for gamma secretase to generate the 4kD amyloid-beta peptide (Ab), which is deposited in the brains of all suffers of Alzheimer’s disease.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 1-2ug/ml
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Positive Control:
Murine brain lysate
