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. It is expressed at high levels in the brain. APP gene is mapped to human chromosome 21q11.2-q21. It is a 695 amino acid protein which possesses a large ectodomain and comparatively short intracellular region.
The immunogen sequence is identical to the APP isoforms APP751 and APP770 and is highly conserved (single amino acid substitution) in rat and mouse APP695. The antibody recognizes APP695, APP751 and APP770.
synthetic peptide corresponding to the N-terminal of human APP695 (amino acids 46-60) conjugated to KLH.

Amyloid precursor proteins (APPs) regulates cell growth, motility, neurite outgrowth and cell survival. The intracellular C-terminus of APP serves as a transcriptional regulator and as a receptor for kinesin-1-mediated axonal transport. Alzheimer′s disease is characterized by deposition of amyloid in the central nervous system, in neurite plaques and on cerebral vasculature. Mutations in the APP gene are linked with rare forms of autosomal dominant familial Alzheimer′s Disease (FAD). APPs undergo post-translational processing including N- and O-glycosylation, phosphorylation and sulfation.
