The amyloid β-peptide (Aβ) has a central role in initiating neurodegeneration in Alzheimer disease (AD) 1. It is widely believed to be an incidental catabolic byproduct of the amyloid β protein precursor (APP) with no normal physiological function.2

Aβ has been shown to be a ligand for a number of different receptors and other molecules3-5.  It is transported between tissues and across the blood brain barrierby complex trafficking pathways6.  Aβ is modulated in response to a variety of environmental stressors and is able to induce pro-inflammatory activities7.

Soluble amyloid β-peptide fragment that is a substrate for gelatinase A/type IV collagenase/MMP-2 and APP secretase; cleaved between Lys16 and Leu17.

Working concentration: mg/ml;

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
