Description

Description

Amyloid beta peptide is the major constituent of amyloid plaques in the brains of individuals afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease. This peptide is generated from the beta-amyloid precursor protein (beta APP) in a two-step process. The first step involves cleavage of the extracellular, amino-terminal domain of beta APP. Protein cleavage is performed by an aspartyl protease termed beta-secretase (BACE). This enzyme is synthesized as a propeptide that must be modified to the mature and active form by the prohormone convertase, furin. Beta APP cleavage by the mature form of BACE results in the cellular secretion of a segment of beta APP and a membrane-bound remnant. This remnant is then processed by another protease termed gamma-secretase. Gamma-secretase cleaves an intra-membrane site in the carboxyl-terminal domain of beta APP, thus generating the amyloid beta peptide. Gamma-secretase is believed to be a multi-subunit complex containing presenilin-1 and 2 as central components. Found associated with the presenilins is the transmembrane glycoprotein nicastrin. Nicastrin has been found to bind to the carboxyl-terminus of betaAPP and helps to modulate the production of the amyloid beta peptide.

PA1-1754 detects human beta-secretase 2 (BACE2). This product is a remanufactured version of PA1-754 produced in new rabbits.PA1-1754 has been successfully used in Western blot procedures. By Western blot this antibody detects an ~58kDa protein representing BACE2 in endogenous and overexpressing HEK-293 cells. PA1-1754 also detects two unidentified bands at ~61kDa and ~80 kDa. The PA1-1754 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues C P(503) E V V N D E S S L V R H R W K(518) of human BACE2. This sequence is completely conserved in mouse. The PA1-1754 immunizing peptide (Cat. # PEP-167) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
