Reacts with human Abeta42. No significant cross-reactivity to Abeta40 has been observed. Previous lots have shown no cross reactivity to Abeta43. Cross-reactivity against Abeta42 from mouse, rat, pig, cow, sheep, dog, rabbit, frog and polar bear (100% homology) is expected but has not been tested. The antibody has been used in ELISA. Previous lots of this antibody have been used in dot blots, RIA, and other related assays.
Beta amyloid is a 40–43 amino acid peptide cleaved from amyloid precursor protein by a protease, gamma-secretase. Beta Amyloid (1-40) (Amyloid beta 40 or Abeta 40) together with beta Amyloid (1-42) (Amyloid beta 42 or Abeta 42) are two major C-terminal variants of the amyloid beta protein, constituting the majority of amyloid beta proteins. Both the Amyloid beta 40 and Amyloid beta 42 alloforms are major components of the extracellular plaques found in Alzheimer's disease brain tissue.
