Data Example

Immunohistochemistry BACE‑2 in Human Skin. View Larger

BACE‑2 in Human Skin. BACE‑2 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human skin using Rat Anti-Human BACE‑2 Ectodomain Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB4097) at 25 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Rat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS017) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Lower panel shows a lack of labeling if primary antibodies are omitted and tissue is stained only with secondary antibody followed by incubation with detection reagents.

Background: BACE-2

BACE-2 ( beta -site APP cleaving enzyme 2; also Asp-1 and Memapsin-1) is a 73‑75 kDa member of the peptidase A1 family. It is expressed both in- and outside the CNS, and is classified as a Golgi aspartyl protease. Its status as a beta -secretase is unclear; if it has physiological activity, it may be associated with glia. Mature BACE-2 is a 456 amino acid (aa) type I transmembrane glycoprotein. It contains a 411 aa extracellular domain (aa 63‑473) that has two catalytic residues (Asp93 and Asp289). Two potential splice forms exist; one shows a deletion of aa 329‑378, while a second shows an 18 aa substitution for aa 380‑518. Over aa 63‑466, human BACE-2 shares 92% aa sequence identity with mouse BACE-2.
