Tau Peptides
Alzheimer’s disease is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by extracellular amyloid-β (Aβ) plaques and intracellular neurofibrillary tangles containing pathological tau protein aggregates. Even though both, Aβ and tau, are related to Alzheimer’s disease, studies have shown that the degree of tau-related pathology correlates better with the degree of dementia than the amyloid plaque burden. Human tau, which exists in six isoforms of different length, is used in cerebrospinal fluid as a sensitive and specific biomarker for Alzheimer’s disease, usually determined by ELISA. In addition to our catalog portfolio of over 250 Alzheimer’s disease related research products, Bachem now offers a comprehensive choice of tau peptides including phosphorylated sequences as new catalog products.

Vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) and pituitary adenylate cyclase activating polypeptide (PACAP) belong to a family of regulatory peptides which are widely expressed in the body. Their widespread distribution is correlated with their involvement in a large variety of biological activities. Both peptides display a remarkable amino acid sequence homology. They exert their biological effects through specific membrane receptors, belonging to the superfamily of G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), named PACAP/VIP-receptors, whose signaling mechanism involves the activation of adenylate cyclase and phospholipase C cascades. Since their discovery VIP and PACAP have become the research interest of many laboratories, as reflected by the increasing number of publications related to this subject. In this brochure we present a selection of products for VIP and PACAP research.
