Product Description

Alzheimer's disease (AD) was first reported by A. Alzheimer, a German neuropathologist in 1907 and is considered as a major factor of dementia. It is known that Amyloid β (Aβ; which is major constituent of senile plaque) is cleaved from Amyloid Precursor Protein (APP; which exists in three main isoforms, APP695, APP751, and APP770) by β-secretase and subsequent γ-secretase. The production of soluble APPβ (sAPPβ) by β-secretase cleavage corresponds to Aβ production accordingly, so it is desired to measure sAPPβ in parallel with Aβ. In addition, it is reported that APP gene mutation exists in individuals who suffer early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Swedish mutation, one of the APP gene mutations, is a double mutation at positions -1 to -2 from the β-secretase cleavage site (Lys670→Asn and Met671→Leu) . And further, it is reported that Swedish mutation elevates Aβ40 and Aβ42 production, and that the mutation is utilized in establishment of transgenic mice. The measuring sAPPβ in Swedish type is useful for research of AD as well as in wild type. On the one hand, it is considered that in the metabolic pathway of APP, APP is first cleaved by α-secretase rather than β-secretase normally to produce soluble APPα (sAPPα) and subsequently P3 is cleaved from the remaining C-terminal fragment by γ-secretase. This kit can measure human sAPPα in samples . IBL has many other kinds of Amyloidβ-related products for AD research. They are very specific assay systems for each target and they can be used according to the purpose of study.

FAQ

  • Question
    Q.What is epitope of the antibodies used in this kit?
  • Answer
    A.The HRP conjugated labeled antibody (Anti-Human APP (R101A4) Mouse IgG Fab’ Affinity Purify) used in this kit detects domain at N-Terminal.
    The epitope of the precoated plate antibody (Anti-Human sAPPα (2B3) Mouse IgG MoAb Affinity Purify at C-Terminal) used in this kit is DAEFRHDSGYEVHHQK.
  • Question
    Q.Does this kit cross reacts to mouse sAPPα if TG mice that express human sAPPα is used for the assay?
  • Answer
    A.No, it does not cross react to mouse sAPPα. This kit only detects human sAPPα.
  • Question
    Q.Is composition of EIA buffer of each ELISA kit all same? Can it be mixed to use?
    ELISA common FAQ
  • Answer
    A.No it isn't. As constitute of each EIA buffer is different, it cannot be mixed with other lots or EIA buffers contained in other kind of ELISA kits.
  • Question
    Q.What is the composition of concentrated wash buffer?
    ELISA common FAQ
  • Answer
    A.It contains ordinary Tween and phosphate buffer (0.05% Tween-20 in PB).
  • Question
    Q.What is the feature of the plate?
    ELISA common FAQ
  • Answer
    A.We use plate that is flat bottom and removable strip type plate (8wellx 12 strips).
  • Question
    Q.Can I re-use standard after reconstitution?
    ELISA common FAQ
  • Answer
    A.Not recommended to re-use standard after reconstitution. Please use it at once after the reconstitution.
    Please note that there are some exceptions. One time freeze-thaw the standard is acceptable for use after reconstitution for some ELISAs.
    Please check the details on each product datasheet.
  • Question
    Q.What is different between reagent blank and test sample blank?
    ELISA common FAQ
  • Answer
    A.Reagent blank means a well is only added EIA buffer and the purpose is confirming whether the measuring value is influenced by lack of washing process. Test sample blank means a well is added EIA buffer and HRP antibody and the purpose is to calculate the background.
  • Question
    Q.How many samples can be measured by this kit?
    ELISA common FAQ
  • Answer
    A.The pre-coated plate contained in our ELISA kit is 96 wells plate. We recommend to use 16 wells (2 slits) for standard and 80 wells (10 slits) for 40 samples in duplicate.
  • Question
    Q.What is LOD (Limit of Detection)?
    ELISA common FAQ
  • Answer
    A.It (LOD) is defined as sensitivity that is calculated using the NCCSL method. Please refer to a datasheet of each product.
  • Question
    Q.What is LOQ (Limit of Quantification)?
    ELISA common FAQ
  • Answer
    A.It (LOQ) is the lowest value of measurement (standard) range. Please refer to a datasheet of each product.
