Nicastrin is one of the essential components of the γ-secretase complex. The γ-secretase complex is one of the proteases involved in processing amyloid precursor protein (APP) to amyloid beta (Aβ). Nicastrin is not catalytically active, instead, it promotes the maturation and localization of other catalytic and regulatory units of the γ-secretase complex. Nicastrin has alsp been reported to regulate neprilysin, which is the enzyme involved in the degradation of Aβ fragment.Product Details

- Recommended Usage
Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by Western blotting. For Western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 0.1 - 0.5 µg per ml. For immunohistochemistry, a concentration range of 1.0 - 5.0 µg/ml is suggested. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
- Application Notes
In human, the antibody also detects the deglycosylated nicastrin, which is observed at ~ 78kD.

- Deglycosylated nicastrin is a 709 amino acid protein with a molecular mass of ~78 kD. Higher molecular weight band of ~110 kD corresponding to glycosylated nicastrin is observed by WB.
Tissue Distribution: Ubiquitously expressed.
Cellular: Distribution: Plasma Membrane, endoplasmic reticulum, lysosome, golgi apparatus, and cytoskeleton.
- Nicastrin is an essential component of the γ-secretase complex that processes amyloid precursor protein to amyloid beta. It is also involved in degradation of amyloid beta fragments.
