General description

Amyloid precursor proteins (APPs) are transmembrane glycoproteins that are found in a wide range of tissues. 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 in rat and mouse APP770 and in the APP isoform APP751, and is absent in APP695. By immunohistochemistry, the antibody recognizes APP770.


synthetic peptide corresponding to the Kunitz Protease Inhibitor (KPI) domain of human APP770 (amino acids 301-315) conjugated to KLH.


Rabbit Anti-Amyloid Precursor Protein, KPI Domain antibody has been used for immunohistochemistry assays at 1:500. The product can also be used for microarrays.
Applications in which this antibody has been used successfully, and the associated peer-reviewed papers, are given below.
