Human Carboxypeptidase E / CPE Protein (Fc Tag)

DatasheetSpecific ReferencesReviewsRelated ProductsProtocols
Human CPE Protein Product Information
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the human carboxypeptidase E (CPE) precursor (NP_001864.1) (Met 1-Ser 453) was expressed with the C-terminal fused Fc region of human IgG1.
Expressed Host:Human Cells
Shipping:In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
Human CPE Protein QC Testing
Purity:> 85 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Endotoxin:< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Stability:Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃
Predicted N Terminal:Glu 26
Molecule Mass:The recombinant human CPE/Fc is a disulfide-linked homodimeric protein. The reduced monomer consists of 666 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 74.6 kDa. As a result of glycosylation, the apparent molecular mass of rhCPE/Fc monomer is approximately 85-90 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Formulation:Lyophilized from sterile 100mM Glycine, 10mM NaCl, 50mM Tris, pH 7.5
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose and mannitol are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.
2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.

Carboxypeptidase E/CPE Background

Human carboxypeptidase E (CPE), also known as Carboxypeptidase H, is a peripheral membrane protein and a zinc metallocarboxypeptidase, and the conversion of proCPE into CPE occurs primarily in secretory vesicles. The active form of CPE cleaves C-terminal amino acid residues of the peptide, and is thus involved in the biosynthesis of peptide hormones and neurotransmitters including insulin, enkephalin, etc. The enzymatic activity is enhanced by millimolar concentrations of Co2+. It has also been proposed that membrane-associated carboxypeptidase E acts as a sorting receptor for targeting regulated secretory proteins which are mostly prohormones and neuropeptides in the trans-Golgi network of the pituitary and in secretory granules into the secretory pathway.Its interaction with glycosphingolipid-cholesterol rafts at the TGN facilitates the targeting. Mutations in this gene are implicated in type I I diabetes due to impaired glucose clearance and insulin resistance.
