Heat-mediated antigen retrieval using a sodium citrate buffer (pH 6.0) is recommended for the staining of paraffin sections. A suggested positive control for immunohistochemical applications is Alzheimer's affected brain tissue.
B-site amyloid precursor protein (APP)-cleaving enzyme 1 (BACE1) is a 75kD type I integral membrane glycoprotein and aspartic protease. BACE1 is a member of the peptidase A1 protein family, and is expressed by neurons and astrocytes in the brain. BACE1 catalyzes the cleavage of beta APP at the extracellular, amino-terminal domain leading to the formation of amyloid beta peptide. Amyloid beta peptide is the major constituent of amyloid plaques in the brains of individuals afflicated with Alzheimer's disease.
