LRRTM3 in Human Brain. LRRTM3 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human brain with Alzheimer's disease using Human LRRTM3 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB4898) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

Human LRRTM3 (leucine-rich repeat transmembrane neuronal 3) is a 63 kDa (predicted) type I transmembrane glycoprotein that is one of four LRRTM family members within the LRR protein superfamily (1). The LRRTM3 cDNA encodes 581 amino acids (aa), including a 389 aa extracellular region that shares 98% aa identity with mouse and rat LRRTM3. Isoform 2 lacks cytoplasmic aa 514-581. LRRTMs in mouse show distinct expression patterns during formation of the central nervous system (CNS) and expression persists in adult brain. LRRTM3 promotes processing of amyloid precursor protein by BACE1, and may be mutated in late-onset Alzheimer’s disease.
