Rabbit anti Human BACE2 antibody recognizes human Beta-secretase 2, also known as BACE2, Aspartic-like protease 56 kDa, Aspartyl protease 1, Beta-site amyloid precursor protein cleaving enzyme 2, Down region aspartic protease, Memapsin-1, Membrane-associated aspartic protease 1 or Theta-secretase. BACE2 is a 456 amino acid ~56 kDa single pass type 1 transmembrane glycoprotein bearing a 20 amino acid N-terminal signal peptide and an adjacent 42 amino acid pro-peptide region. Rabbit anti Human BACE2 antibody recognizes an epitope within the N-terminal region of BACE2, a homologue of the beta-site APP cleaving enzyme (BACE). BACE2 has been reported to cleave the beta-amyloid precursor protein (APP) at the beta-site, producing amyloid-beta protein (Yan et al.1999). Accumulation of amyloid beta plaques in the cerebral cortex play an important role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease, particularly in individuals bearing the Flemish mutation (Farzan et al. 2000).
