  • Additional notes


    This peptide may be used for neutralization and control experiments with the polyclonal antibody that reacts with this product and human nicastrin, catalog ab3444. Using a solution of peptide of equal volume and concentration to the corresponding antibody will yield a large molar excess of peptide (~ 70-fold) for competitive inhibition of antibody-protein binding reactions.

  • FunctionEssential subunit of the gamma-secretase complex, an endoprotease complex that catalyzes the intramembrane cleavage of integral membrane proteins such as Notch receptors and APP (beta-amyloid precursor protein). It probably represents a stabilizing cofactor required for the assembly of the gamma-secretase complex.
  • Tissue specificityWidely expressed.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the nicastrin family.
  • Cellular localizationMembrane. Melanosome. Identified by mass spectrometry in melanosome fractions from stage I to stage IV.
  • Information by UniProt
