Product Name Beta - Amyloid (1 - 40), Human
Size 5 mg
Catalog # 24236-5
US$ $1045
Purity % Peak Area By HPLC ≥ 95%

Aß (1-40) together with Aß (1-42) are two major C-terminal variants of the Aß protein constituting the majority of Aßs. These undergo post-secretory aggregation and deposition in the Alzheimer’s disease brain.

Electron microscopy of b-amyloid (1-40) stained with Thioflavin T (data generated by an AnaSpec scientist).
