This peptide corresponds to 18 amino acids near the center of human APH1
PEP-0438 can be used as a blocking peptide with polyclonal antibody PA5-20318.
APH1 is an essential subunit of the gamma-secretase complex, an endoprotease complex that catalyzes the intramembrane cleavage of integral proteins such as Notch receptors and APP (beta-amyloid precursor protein). The gamma-secretase complex is minimally composed of a presenilin homodimer (PSEN1 or PSEN2), nicastrin (NCSTN), APH1 (APH1A or APH1B) and PEN2, although other components may exist. APH1 probably represents a stabilizing cofactor for the presenilin homodimer that promotes the formation of a stable complex.
