|Other Names||Amyloid beta A4 precursor protein-binding family A member 1, Adapter protein X11alpha, Neuron-specific X11 protein, Neuronal Munc18-1-interacting protein 1, Mint-1, APBA1, MINT1, X11|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8593c was selected from the Center region of human APBA1. 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||Putative function in synaptic vesicle exocytosis by binding to Munc18-1, an essential component of the synaptic vesicle exocytotic machinery. May modulate processing of the beta- amyloid precursor protein (APP) and hence formation of beta-APP.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm, perinuclear region Nucleus. Note=Only about 5% of the protein is located in the nucleus|
|Tissue Location||Brain and spinal cord. Isoform 2 is expressed in testis and brain, but not detected in lung, liver or spleen|

APBA1 is a member of the X11 protein family. It is a neuronal adapter protein that interacts with the Alzheimer's disease amyloid precursor protein (APP). It stabilizes APP and inhibits production of proteolytic APP fragments including the A beta peptide that is deposited in the brains of Alzheimer's disease patients. This protein is believed to be involved in signal transduction processes. It is also regarded as a putative vesicular trafficking protein in the brain that can form a complex with the potential to couple synaptic vesicle exocytosis to neuronal cell adhesion.
