Description
β-secretase, also called BACE (β-site of APP cleaving enzyme), is an aspartic-acid protease important in the pathogenesis of Alzheimers disease and in the formation of myelin sheaths in peripheral nerve cells. BACE1, also known as memapsin-2, is the major β-secretase for generation of the 40 or 42 amino-acid-long β-amyloid peptides that aggregate in the brain of Alzheimers patients. Extracellular cleavage of APP by BACE1 releases a soluble extracellular fragment and is followed by APP cleavage within its transmembrane domain by γ-secretase. The second cleavage releases the intracellular domain of APP and β-amyloid.
The immature form of BACE1 contains an N-terminal signal sequence (residues 1–21) followed by a large catalytic domain, a single transmembrane domain (residues 461–477), and a short cytoplasmic domain (residues 478–501). The signal sequence (1-21) is cleaved from the immature form, yielding the proBACE1 protein, which starts at residue 22. The proBACE1 protein is modified by cleavage of 24 N-terminal residues (aa 22-45), producing the mature BACE1 protein.

GenScript Rabbit Anti-BACE1 (26-45) Polyclonal Antibody is developed in rabbit using a synthetic peptide, IRLPLRSGLGGAPLGLRLPR, corresponding to amino acids 26-45 at the N-terminal of human BACE1.
GenScript Rabbit Anti-BACE1 (26-45) pAb is highly purified from rabbit antiserum by immunoaffinity chromatography and is supplied as 40 μg aliquots at concentration of 0.5 mg/ml.
Ig Subclass
Rabbit IgG
Storage
The antibody is stable for 2-3 weeks if stored at 2-8°C. For long term storage, aliquot and store at -20°C or below. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing cycles.
Specificity
GenScript Rabbit Anti-BACE1 (26-45) Polyclonal Antibody can specifically detect human BACE1. Sequence homology predicts that it will also react with mouse, rat, and bovine BACE1.
Formulation
0.5 mg/ml in PBS, pH 7.4, containing 30% glycerol, and 0.02% sodium azide
Immunogen
A synthetic peptide (KLH-conjugated), IRLPLRSGLGGAPLGLRLPR, corresponding to amino acids 26-45 at N-terminal of human BACE1
Purification Method
Immunoaffinity chromatography
