Mouse BACE2 Protein Product Information
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the mouse BACE2 (Q9JL18) (Met1-Pro462) was expressed with a C-terminal polyhistidine tag.
Expressed Host:Human Cells
Shipping:In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
Mouse BACE2 Protein QC Testing
Purity:> 95 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Bio-Activity:Measured by its ability to cleave a fluorogenic peptide substrate Mca-KPLGL-Dpa-AR-NH2 (Catalog # ES010).
The specific activity is >50 pmoles/min/μg.
Endotoxin:< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Stability:Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃
Predicted N Terminal:Ala 20
Molecule Mass:The recombinant mouse BACE2 comprises 454 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 49.2 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of the protein is approximately 55 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions due to glycosylation.
Formulation:Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose and mannitol are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.
2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
Mouse BACE2 Protein Usage Guide
Storage:Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.

BACE2 / Beta secretase 2 Background

BACE2, also known as beta secretase 2, belongs to the peptidase A1 family. It is a protease known to be an important enzyme involved in the cellular pathways. BACE2 has been shown to interact with GGA1 and GGA2. It is the major β-secretase in vivo. BACE2 is located on chromosome 21 and may play a role in alzheimer's disease pathogenesis in down syndrome(DS). Overexpression of BACE2 by lentivirus markedly reduced amyloid β protein production in primary neurons. Despite an extra copy of the BACE2 gene in DS and the increase of its transcription, BACE2 protein levels are unchanged.
