PA1-753 detects human beta-secretase 2 (BACE2) from transfected cells and rat and mouse samples.
PA1-753 has been successfully used in Western blot and ICC/IF procedures. By Western blot this antibody detects an ~58 kDa protein representing BACE2 from SY-SY5Y cells overexpressing the human gene.
The PA1-753 immunizing peptide corresponds to amino acid residues 441-457 from human BACE2. This sequence is completely conserved in mouse. The PA1-753 immunizing peptide (Cat. # PEP-166) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
BACE2 or Beta Secretase 2 is responsible for the proteolytic processing of the amyloid precursor protein (APP). BACE2 cleaves APP between residues 690 and 691. This cleavage leads to the generation and extracellular release of beta-cleaved soluble APP. BACE2 is also know to cleave APP between residues 671 and 672. Accumulation of APP is a signature of Alzheimer disease and frequent complication of adult Down syndrome patients.
