Description

Background

Beta amyloid, often abbreviated as A-beta, is a protein that builds up in the brains of persons with Alzheimer's disease, collecting in clumps called plaques or senile plaques. While some researchers question whether beta amyloid is the cause of the dementia, most agree that it is involved in the disruption of thinking that is a hallmark of the disease. In some cases of familial Alzheimer's disease, mutations in genes for the proteins called the presenilins lead to increased production of amyloid. Researchers have been looking at how presenilin-1 in particular contributes to the excess buildup of beta amyloid. Presenilin-1 apparently acts to increase the activity of gamma-secretase, an enzyme that changes a normal protein (amyloid precursor protein or APP) into beta amyloid itself. Furthermore, presenilin-1 might be gamma-secretase. Anti-Beta Amyloid Antibody is useful for researchers interested in TLR signaling and Alzheimer's research.

Synonyms

rabbit anti-Beta Amyloid Antibody, ß-amyloid, Amyloid beta A4 protein, Alzheimer disease amyloid protein, Beta amyloid, A-beta, ABPP, APPI, Beta-amyloid precursor protein

Immunogen

This antibody was affinity purified from whole rabbit serum prepared by repeated immunizations with a synthetic peptide corresponding to an extracellular region of human beta amyloid conjugated to KLH using maleimide.

Application Note

Affinity purified anti-beta amyloid detects beta amyloid in ELISA, IHC, WB, and IF. A 45.8kDa band is detected in western blot using whole tissue extracts and lysates from mouse and human.  In general, we recommend the use of 4% PFA or 10% formalin for fixation of tissues with IHC-paraffin or IHC-frozen application of this antibody.

Purity/Specificity

This affinity purified antibody is directed against extracellular region of beta amyloid and is useful in determining its presence in various assays.  Polyclonal anti-beta amyloid detects human and mouse beta amyloid.  Blast analysis of the sequence of the immunogen shows 100% identity with Human, Guinea Pig, Pig, Cyno Monkey, Dog, Polar Bear, Rabbit, Chimp, Squirrel monkey, and Sheep. Cross reactivity with beta amyloid from other species is likely but has not been determined.
