Amyloid β peptide fragment. Highly toxic, showing higher neurotoxicity compared to Aβ40 and Aβ42 (ab120479 / ab120301). Aggregates and is potently amyloidogenic in vivo. Induces synaptic dysfunction and impairs memory.
Store at -20°C. Store under desiccating conditions. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Soluble in water to 1 mg/ml
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one week. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
