|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||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP13163b was selected from the C-term region of ITM2B. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. 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-secretaseand gamma-secretase to produce beta-amyloid peptides which form thecharacteristic plaques of Alzheimer disease. This gene encodes atransmembrane protein which is processed at the C-terminus by furinor furin-like proteases to produce a small secreted peptide whichinhibits the deposition of beta-amyloid. Mutations which result inextension of the C-terminal end of the encoded protein, therebyincreasing the size of the secreted peptide, are associated withtwo neurogenerative diseases, familial British dementia andfamilial Danish dementia.
