Storage and Handling
This polyclonal antibody is stable for at least one week when stored at 2-8°C. For long term storage, aliquot in working volumes without diluting and store at –20°C in a manual defrost freezer. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles.
Rabbit Anti-Human β-Amyloid Precursor Protein (APP) recognizes an epitope near the C-terminus of Human, Mouse and Rat β-Amyloid Precursor Protein. This polyclonal antibody was purified using affinity chromatography.
Accumulation of the amyloid-β peptide (αβ) in the cerebral cortex is a critical event in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease. The b-amyloid protein precursor (APP) is cleaved by β-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-β peptide (αβ), which is deposited in the brains of all suffers of Alzheimer’s disease.
