|Application ||IHC-P, WB, E|
|Other Accession||Q60HC1, NP_068839.1|
|Calculated MW||30338 Da|
|Antigen Region||218-247 aa|
|Other Names||Integral membrane protein 2B, Immature BRI2, imBRI2, Protein E25B, Transmembrane protein BRI, Bri, BRI2, membrane form, Mature BRI2, mBRI2, BRI2 intracellular domain, BRI2 ICD, BRI2C, soluble form, Bri23 peptide, Bri2-23, ABri23, C-terminal peptide, P23 peptide, ITM2B, BRI, BRI2|
|Target/Specificity||This ITM2B antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 218-247 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human ITM2B.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||ITM2B Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Plays a regulatory role in the processing of the beta- amyloid A4 precursor protein (APP) and acts as an inhibitor of the beta-amyloid peptide aggregation and fibrils deposition. Plays a role in the induction of neurite outgrowth. Functions as a protease inhibitor by blocking access of secretases to APP cleavage sites. Bri23 peptide prevents aggregation of APP beta-amyloid protein 42 peptide into toxic oligomers.|
|Cellular Location||Integral membrane protein 2B: Golgi apparatus membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein. Note=Immature BRI2 (imBRI2) is cleaved by furin in the Golgi into mBRI2 and a Bri23 peptide mBRI2 is transported to the plasma membrane and Bri23 peptide is secreted Bri23 peptide: Secreted. Note=Detected in the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF).|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitous. Expressed in brain.|

Amyloid precursor proteins are processed by beta-secretase and gamma-secretase to produce beta-amyloid peptides which form the characteristic plaques of Alzheimer disease. This gene encodes a transmembrane protein which is processed at the C-terminus by furin or furin-like proteases to produce a small secreted peptide which inhibits the deposition of beta-amyloid. Mutations which result in extension of the C-terminal end of the encoded protein, thereby increasing the size of the secreted peptide, are associated with two neurogenerative diseases, familial British dementia and familial Danish dementia.
