General description

Amyloid precursor proteins (APPs) are transmembrane glycoproteins that are found in a wide range of tissues. APP is expressed in the brain. It is located on human chromosome 21. APPs have 3 main isoforms, namely, APP695, APP751 and APP770 that are derived from alternative splicing events in cells. Accumulation of the cleavage products of APP, such as the β-amyloid peptide, can cause Alzheimer′s disease.
The immunogen sequence is identical to rat and mouse APP695 and in the APP isoforms APP751 and APP770. The antibody recognizes APP695, APP751 and APP770.

Immunogen

Synthetic peptide corresponding to the C-terminal of human APP695 conjugated to KLH.

Application

SH-SY5Y cell lysates were analyzed by western blot using rabbit anti-Amyloid Precursor Protein, C-Terminal as the primary antibody at a 1:500 dilution.
Rabbit Anti-Amyloid Precursor Protein, C-Terminal antibody has been used for immunoprecipitation, immunohistochemical analysis, immunohistochemical staining and western blot applications. The product can also be used for IHC (1:1,000) and microarray studies.

Biochem/physiol Actions

In transiently transfected cell lines, APP (amyloid precursor protein) regulates cell growth, motility, neurite outgrowth and cell survival. The intracellular C-terminus of APP acts as a transcriptional regulator and its amino acid domain serves as a regulator of its own intracellular sorting. Mutation of the gene leads to cerebral amyloid angiopathy. Accumulation of the cleavage products of APP, such as the β-amyloid peptide can cause Alzheimer′s disease.

Physical form

Supplied in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide as a preservative.

Storage and Stability

For continuous use, store at 2-8 °C for up to one month. For extended storage freeze in working aliquots. Repeated freezing and thawing, or storage in "frostfree" freezers, is not recommended. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify the solution by centrifugation before use.

Amyloid β (Aβ) is generated from the copper- and heparan sulfate (HS)-binding amyloid precursor protein (APP) by proteolytic processing. APP supports S-nitrosylation of the HS proteoglycan glypican-1 (Gpc-1). In the presence of ascorbate, there is NO-catalyzed release of anhydromannose (anMan)-containing...

Previous studies have shown that acyl-coenzyme A:cholesterol acyl transferase (ACAT), an enzyme that controls cellular equilibrium between free cholesterol and cholesteryl esters, modulates proteolytic processing of APP in cell-based and animal models of Alzheimer's disease. Here we report that ACAT-1...

Amyloid beta (Aβ) peptide, the main component of senile plaques in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD), is derived from proteolytic cleavage of amyloid precursor protein (APP) by β- and γ-secretases. Alpha-cleavage of APP by α-secretase has a potential to preclude...
