APP ELISA Kit (Amyloid Precursor Protein)


Human APP ELISA kit is a procedure designed for determining in vitro quantitative levels of amyloid precursor protein (APP) in human serum, plasma, tissue homogenates and other biological fluids. This assay has a minimum detection limit of 0.563 ng/ml.


Amyloid precursor protein (APP) is an essential integral membrane functioning protein which can be found expressed in a number of different tissues and in particular is concentrated within the synapses of neurons. In humans it is encoded by the APP gene which is known to be located on chromosome 21, it is approx. 290 kb and consists of 18 exons. It is thought to have vital roles in the regulation of neural plasticity, synapse formation and iron export. It is a precursor molecule which can form beta amyloid (Aβ) upon proteolysis.

There are been many publication indicating that APP can undergo extensive post-translational modification such as phosphorylation, glycosylation, tyrosine sulfation, sialylation and many different types of proteolytic processes in order to generate peptide fragment. Often it is found to be cleaved by proteases, this removes the entire extracellular domain in order to release membrane-anchored carboxy-terminal fragments which have been linked to the process of apoptosis. One of the most substantiated role is in synaptic repair and formation, its expression is found to be elevated during neuronal differentiation and following any neural injury.


All reagents supplied need to be stored at 2 °C – 8 °C, unopened reagents will retain reactivity until expiration date. Do not use reagents beyond this date.

I am a first time user and found that your instruction manual was very easy to follow. The insulin ELISA assay performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

J. Thomas
Senior Technician / Addenbrooke’s Hospital

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA assay's from different suppliers and found your kits to be one of the better performers. We observed good linearity and tight replicates.
