BACE1 FRET Assay Kit

Catalog #: 71656
Size: 96 reactions
$515
Description:

Bace1 (β-secretase 1) is an aspartic protease that is involved in the processing of the Amyloid precursor protein (APP). Cleavage of APP by BACE1 followed by γ-secretase results in β-amyloid peptide production, which ultimately leads toxic Aβ accumulation. In Alzheimer’s disease (AD), it has been widely accepted that Aβ aggregation plays a critical role in AD pathogenesis, suggesting that BACE1 could be a potential target to treat AD. The BACE1 FRET Assay Kit is designed to measure BACE1 activity for screening and profiling applications based on fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) using a labeled peptide substrate (below).
