The antibody was raised against the N-terminal eleven residues of human PEN-2. PEN-2 is the smallest component of the multi-protein gamma-secretase complex. Chosen synthetic peptide has been conjugated to KLH
Rat brain homogenate (15 µg). Overnight incubation of PVDF membrane with Pen-2 antibody (5 µg/ml) in PBS containing 1% BSA. Horseradish peroxidase-conjugated, anti-rabbit IgG antibody was used for detection.
One characteristic feature of Alzheimer’s disease is the deposition of amyloid-beta peptide (Abeta) as amyloid plaques within specific regions of the human brain. Abeta is derived from the amyloid-beta peptide precursor protein (beta-APP) by the intramembranous cleavage activity of gamma-secretase. PEN-2 (Q9NZ42) is a critical component of PS1/gamma secretase (Farmery et al. 2003; Bergman et al. 2004).Alternative name: presenilin enhancer protein 2
