Amyloid Precursor Protein antibody
Only the APP-751 and APP-770 isoforms contain a KPI domain, it being absent from the APP-695 isoform that is most abundant in neuronal tissue. However, there is evidence that suggests KPI containing isoforms may be important in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer disease.
Rabbit anti Human Amyloid Precursor Protein antibody recognizes a band of ~115kDa in NTera2/DI cell lysates using western blotting under reducing conditions.
