Beta amyloid (1-42) is the predominant form of β-amyloid protein found in the brains of patients with Alzheimer′s disease and Down′s syndrome. Beta amyloid down-regulates bcl-2 (a key anti-apoptotic protein) and upregulates bax (cell death promoter) with evidence suggesting that it renders neurons vulnerable to age-dependent stress and neurodegeneration
Each peptide comes complete with the following information:
a QC summary sheet
two reverse phase HPLC profiles to verify purity
mass spectrometry to verify molecular weight
amino acid analysis to verify composition
We use outside laboratories to provide the amino acid analysis and mass spectrometry. This third-party verification allows us to remain objective and has helped us achieve an excellent record of delivering top quality peptides since 1993.
