This beta Amyloid Antibody (MOAB-2) is useful for Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence, ELISA, Immunoprecipitation, Western Blot, and Immunohistochemistry on paraffin-embedded sections. In Western blot, a band can be seen at ~4 kDa, representing the beta Amyloid monomer. Larger bands may also be seen representing the unaggregated, oligomeric, and fibrillar forms of beta Amyloid. For higher beta Amyloid yield in WB, please follow the extraction protocol described in Youmans et al, J Neurosci Methods. 2011 March 15; 196(1): 51-59 (PMID: 21219931).

Alternate Names for beta Amyloid Antibody (MOAB-2)
Beta Amyloid, also known as Abeta, is a peptide that varies in length from 39 to 43 amino acids and is processed from the Amyloid precursor protein (APP). Beta Amyloid is known as the main component of amyloid plaques, which are deposits found in the brains of patients with Alzheimer's disease. The form(s) of beta Amyloid associated with the pathology characteristic of Alzheimer's disease still remains unclear. Currently, controversy exists as to the existence of intraneuronal beta Amyloid. Research indicates that intraneuronal beta Amyloid accumulation may be an important proximal neurotoxic event in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease. Many commercially available beta Amyloid antibodies cross react with APP or APP C-terminal fragments. This MOAB-2 antibody is specific for beta Amyloid but not APP. MOAB-2 is a pan-specific beta Amyloid antibody that detects unaggregated, oligomeric and fibrillar forms of beta Amyloid. This is important because beta Amyloid is known to aggregate and form a variety of potentially toxic conformations. MOAB-2 displays strong extracellular beta Amyloid immunoreactivity, and so detects classic plaque pathology. MOAB-2 is selective for Abeta 42 over Abeta 40. This is also an advantage as the 42 amino acid form of beta Amyloid is likely the toxic form. MOAB-2 demonstrates strong intraneuronal immunoreactivity in both human and beta Amyloid-Tg mouse tissue and has the potential to aid future research into the functional importance of intraneuronal beta Amyloid.

FAQs for beta Amyloid Antibody (NBP2-13075). (Showing 1 - 1 of 1 FAQs).
Does your antibody beta Amyloid Antibody (MOAB-2) # NBP2-13075 work on frozen sections for histology?
This antibody has never been tested on frozen sections. It has been validated in ICC, IP and IHC on paraffin-embedded tissues, so it may work on frozen sections. While we cannot guarantee that it will work on frozen sections, if you would like to test NBP2-13075 in an untested application and share your results with us, I can recommend our Innovator's Reward Program. Our Innovator's Reward program was created to allow researchers the opportunity to try our primary antibodies in an untested species or application, without the financial risk of failure. To participate you simply submit an online review detailing your positive or negative results. In return, you receive a discount voucher for 100% of the purchase price of the reviewed product.
