An antibody to beta amyloid and the amyloid precursor protein inhibits cell-substratum adhesion in many mammalian cell types.


An epitope-specific antibody directed against the first 16 amino acids of the beta amyloid protein (anti-BP16) immunoprecipitated the secreted form of the amyloid precursor protein (APP) from the conditioned medium of PC12 cells. This antibody caused neurite retraction in differentiated PC12 cells and inhibited cell-substratum adhesion in many neuronal and… (More)
