Gene Information

human ... NCSTN(23385)

General description

Nicastrin (NCSTN) is a transmembrane glycoprotein, that is located on chromosome 1q23.


a 18 amino acid peptide from near the center of human Nicastrin.


Anti-Nicastrin has been used in western blotting.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Nicastrin (NCSTN) helps in the assembly of γ-secretase complex. It is associated with Alzheimer′s disease.


The action of this antibody can be blocked using blocking peptide SBP3985.

Synaptic loss strongly correlates with memory deterioration. Local accumulation of amyloid β (Aβ) peptide, and neurotoxic Aβ42 in particular, due to abnormal neuronal activity may underlie synaptic dysfunction, neurodegeneration, and memory impairments. To gain an insight into molecular events underlying...
