General description

Amyloids are insoluble protein aggregates consisting of misfolded proteins and peptides. Amyloid deposition are associated with multiple neurodegenerative disorders.

The β-amyloid precursor protein (APP) is cleaved sequentially by the proteolytic enzymes β-secretase (BACE1) and γ-secretase to produce β-amyloid (Aβ) peptides with the Aβ1-42 and the Aβ1-40 forms being the most prevalent. Secreted Aβ peptides are degraded either via a re-uptake mechanism followed by endosomal degradation, or by an extracellular insulin degrading enzyme. Extracellular accumulation of Aβ leads to the formation of aggregates, fibrils and eventually amyloid deposits called neuritic plaques, which is the hallmark of Alzheimer′s disease (AD).
Rabbit Anti-β-Amyloid Protein (1-40) antibody does not stain control sections of normal brain tissues.

Weak cross-reaction is observed with β-amyloid (1-28) and β-amyloid (12-28), but no cross-reactivity is seen with calcitonin gene related peptide (CGRP)-KLH conjugate. The product may be used for the immunohistochemical detection of senile-plaques in brain sections of Alzheimer′s disease (AD) patients.
