N3pE Amyloid-beta Isoform Assays

Posted on

N3pE Amyloid-beta Isoform AssaysAmyloid-beta is generated through amyloid precursor protein (APP) cleavage by specific secretases. Beta-secretase cleaves an extracellular portion of APP and frees a soluble peptide. Gamma-secretase cleaves APP within the transmembrane domain, creating amyloid-beta (Aβ) isoforms with lengths between 36-43 amino acid residues. 

In N3pE amyloid beta isoforms, the 3rd glutmate residue is converted to pyroglutamate. N3pE-40 and N3pE-42 variants may have a higher propensity toward aggregation than unmodified amyloid beta, which has been hypothesized to contribute to the Alzheimer's pathology. The Amyloid Beta ( N3pE-40) ELISA kit (Cat# 27418) selectively detects the N3pE-40 amyloid beta variant, whereas a separate ELISA Kit (Cat# 27716) selectively detects N3pE-42. 


Amyloid Beta ( N3pE-40 ) Aβ ELISA (Cat# 27418) -The affinity purified monoclonal antibody percolated on the ELISA plate and the affinity purified polyclonal HRP conjugated detection antibody is selective to AβN3pE-40 with minimal cross-reactivity to N3pE-42. The antibodies have been generated to the N-terminus of AβN3pE-40.


Amyloid Beta ( N3pE-42) Aβ ELISA (Cat# 27716) -The affinity purified monoclonal antibody percolated on the ELISA plate and the affiniy purified polyclonal HRP conjugated detection antibody is selective to AβN3pE-42. The antibodies have been generated to the N-terminus of AβN3pE-42.

Angiotensinogen Detection | ELISAs & Antibodies

Angiotensinogen Detection Angiotensinogen (also known as serpin peptidase inhibitor, clade A, member 8; Serpin A8, Ang, Ang II, PAT, and ANRT) is a 452-amino acid hormone precursor produced by the liver and is implicated in blood pressure control. Urinary excretion of angiotensinogen in a rat hypertension model indicates that this protein is involved in the intrarenal [...]

Drug Monitoring Assays | TNF Inhibitors

TNF inhibitors are a type of drug used worldwide to treat inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis, juvenile arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis), ankylosing spondylitis, and psoriasis. They reduce inflammation and stop disease progression by targeting an inflammation-causing substance called Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF). In healthy individuals, excess TNF in [...]

Complement Assay Applications in Drug Development and Clinical Research

The complement system is an important part of the innate immune system. It consists of three different activation pathways - classical, alternative and lectin/MBL - and is regulated by complex protein cascades involving more than 35 proteins.The complement system cooperates closely with the adaptive immune system and cross-talks with the coagulation system.Having an important role in the [...]

New Mouse/Rat Intact Proinsulin CLEIA Kit!

Proinsulin is a precursor of insulin that is synthesized in the β cells of the islet of Langerhans in the pancreas.  Most of the proinsulin synthesized in the rough endoplasmic reticulum of β cells is stored in the secretory granules. It is cleaved by prohormone converting enzyme (PC 2 and PC 3) and it is [...]

​Galactose-deficient IgA1 (Gd-IgA1) as a Biomarker for IgA Nephropathy

Galactose-deficient IgA1 (Gd-IgA1) attracts a lot of attention as a critical effector molecule in the pathogenesis and progression of IgA nephropathy (IgAN) in many recent studies. It is suggested that several O-link glycans modified regions exist in the heavy chain hinge region of human IgA1 molecules and Gd-IgA1 circulates in blood stream of the patients with [...]
