The Human Beta Secretase 1 (Hu BACE) ELISA quantitates Hu BACE in human serum, plasma, or cell culture medium. The assay will exclusively recognize both natural and recombinant Hu BACE. Principle of the method The Human BACE solid-phase sandwich ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) is designed to measure the amount of the target bound between a matched antibody pair. A target-specific antibody has been pre-coated in the wells of the supplied microplate. Samples, standards, or controls are then added into these wells and bind to the immobilized (capture) antibody. The sandwich is formed by the addition of the second (detector) antibody, a substrate solution is added that reacts with the enzyme-antibody-target complex to produce measurable signal. The intensity of this signal is directly proportional to the concentration of target present in the original specimen. Rigorous validation Each manufactured lot of this ELISA kit is quality tested for criteria such as sensitivity, specificity, precision, and lot-to-lot consistency. See manual for more information on validation.Accumulation of the amyloid-b (Ab) plaque in the cerebral cortex is a critical event in the pathogenesis Alzheimer's disease. Ab peptide is generated by proteolytic cleavage of the b-amyloid protein precursor(APP) at b- and g-sites by two proteases. APP is first cleaved by b-secretase, producing a soluble derivative of the protein and a membrane anchored 99-amino acid carboxy-terminal fragment (C99). The C99 fragment serves as substrate for g-secretase to generate the 4 kDa amyloid-b peptide, which is deposited in the brains of all sufferers of Alzheimer's disease. The long-sought b-secretase was recently identified by several groups independently and designated beta-site APP cleaving enzyme (BACE) and aspartyl protease 2 (Asp2). bACE/Asp2 is a novel transmembrane aspartic protease and colocalizes with APP.
