|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||Q8BVF7, NP_057106.2|
|Calculated MW||28996 Da|
|Antigen Region||41-70 aa|
|Other Names||Gamma-secretase subunit APH-1A, APH-1a, Aph-1alpha, Presenilin-stabilization factor, APH1A, PSF|
|Target/Specificity||This APH1A antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 41-70 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human APH1A.|
|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.|
|Precautions||APH1A Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Essential subunit of the gamma-secretase complex, an endoprotease complex that catalyzes the intramembrane cleavage of integral proteins such as Notch receptors and APP (beta-amyloid precursor protein). It probably represents a stabilizing cofactor for the presenilin homodimer that promotes the formation of a stable complex.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Golgi apparatus, Golgi stack membrane; Multi- pass membrane protein. Note=Predominantly located in the endoplasmic reticulum and in the cis-Golgi|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed. Expressed in leukocytes, lung, placenta, small intestine, liver, kidney, spleen thymus, skeletal muscle, heart and brain. Isoform 1 and isoform 2 are nearly expressed at the same level.|

APH1 is a multipass transmembrane protein that interacts with presenilin (see PSEN1; MIM 104311) and nicastrin (APH2; MIM 605254) as a functional component of the gamma-secretase complex. The gamma-secretase complex is required for the intramembrane proteolysis of a number of membrane proteins, including the amyloid-beta precursor protein (APP; MIM 104760) and Notch (MIM 190198).
