General description

The antibody reacts specifically with β-amyloid protein. The epitope recognized by the antibody resides within amino acids 1-12 of the β-amyloid protein. It specifically stains amyloid plaques within the cortex and amyloid deposits in blood vessels using formic acid-treated, formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded, and Methacarn-fixed sections of human Alzheimer′s disease (AD) brain tissue.

β-amyloid protein or aβ4 is derived from larger protein that belongs to the family of 70kDa transmembrane glycoproteins (amyloid precursor proteins, APP). These are produced in various isoforms by alternative splicing. APPs are synthesized by many tissues including brain cells. Abnormal β-amyloid protein deposits have been associated with Alzheimer′s disease, Down′s syndrome, Dutch-type amyloidosis and Lewy body dementia.

Physical form

Monoclonal Anti-β-Amyloid Protein is provided as ascites fluid with 15mM sodium azide as a preservative.


Mouse monoclonal anti-ABETA was used to treat old WT PDAPP mice with amyloid accumulation and learning deficits in an attempt to improve learning and decrease accumulation, however no response was observed.

The antibody is useful in immunohistochemistry, immunoblotting, ELISA, and competitive ELISA. Also, this antibody has been used to neutralize Aβ assemblies in brains of transgenic mice expressing a mutant form of amyloid precursor protein, and for in vivo deep tissue imaging using near-IR optical spectrum.
