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.
Rabbit Anti-phospho-APP (pThr668) antibody binds to human APP phosphorylated at Thr668. Mouse, rat and frog APP are 100% homologous.


synthetic phosphopeptide corresponding to the region of APP containing threonine 688.


Cultured cortical neurons were immunostained for APP using rabbit anti-phospho-APP (pThr688) antibody.
Rabbit Anti-phospho-APP (pThr668) antibody can be used for western blot applications at a dilution of 1:1,000.

Physical form

Solution in Dulbecco′s phosphate buffered saline (without Mg2+ and Ca2+), pH 7.3, with 50% glycerol, 1.0 mg/mL BSA (IgG and protease free) and 0.05% sodium azide.

The beta-amyloid precursor protein (APP) and the Notch receptor undergo intramembranous proteolysis by the Presenilin-dependent gamma-secretase. The cleavage of APP by gamma-secretase releases amyloid-beta peptides, which have been implicated in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease, and the APP intracellular domain...

When humans breathe compressed air or N2-O2 mixtures at three to four atmospheres pressure, they will experience nitrogen narcosis that may possibly lead to a diving accident, but the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Mice were exposed to 1.6 MPa breathing...

Oxidative stress and neuroinflammation play important roles in the pathology of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Thioredoxin-interacting protein (TXNIP), an endogenous inhibitor of antioxidant thioredoxin, is suspected to be an important modulator of oxidative stress and inflammation. However, the underlying mechanism involved...

The increased ratio of longer amyloid-β (Aβ1-42)/shorter amyloid-β (Aβ1-40) peptides, generated from amyloid precursor protein (APP), is known to promote the development of Alzheimer's disease (AD). To investigate the role of smoking in Aβ production, we determined the production of...

The amyloid beta protein has been identified as an important component of both cerebrovascular amyloid and amyloid plaques of Alzheimer's disease and Down syndrome. A complementary DNA for the beta protein suggests that it derives from a larger protein expressed...
