|Other Names||Beta-secretase 2, Aspartic-like protease 56 kDa, Aspartyl protease 1, ASP1, Asp 1, Beta-site amyloid precursor protein cleaving enzyme 2, Beta-site APP cleaving enzyme 2, Down region aspartic protease, DRAP, Memapsin-1, Membrane-associated aspartic protease 1, Theta-secretase, BACE2, AEPLC, ALP56, ASP21|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP13838b was selected from the C-term region of BACE2. 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.|
|Synonyms||AEPLC, ALP56, ASP21|
|Function||Responsible for the proteolytic processing of the amyloid precursor protein (APP). Cleaves APP, between residues 690 and 691, leading to the generation and extracellular release of beta-cleaved soluble APP, and a corresponding cell-associated C- terminal fragment which is later released by gamma-secretase. It has also been shown that it can cleave APP between residues 671 and 672.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Golgi apparatus. Endoplasmic reticulum. Endosome. Cell surface|
|Tissue Location||Brain. Present in neurons within the hippocampus, frontal cortex and temporal cortex (at protein level). Expressed at low levels in most peripheral tissues and at higher levels in colon, kidney, pancreas, placenta, prostate, stomach and trachea. Expressed at low levels in the brain. Found in spinal cord, medulla oblongata, substantia nigra and locus coruleus. Expressed in the ductal epithelium of both normal and malignant prostate.|

Cerebral deposition of amyloid beta peptide is an earlyand critical feature of Alzheimer's disease and a frequentcomplication of Down syndrome. Amyloid beta peptide is generated byproteolytic cleavage of amyloid precursor protein by 2 proteases,one of which is the protein encoded by this gene. This genelocalizes to the 'Down critical region' of chromosome 21. Theencoded protein, a member of the peptidase A1 protein family, is atype I integral membrane glycoprotein and aspartic protease. Threetranscript variants encoding different isoforms have been describedfor this gene.
