Human XPNPEP2 Protein Product Information
Synonym:RP4-753P9.2, APP2
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the human XPNPEP2 (O43895) (Met 1-Ala 650) without the pro peptide was expressed, with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
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 XPNPEP2 Protein QC Testing
Purity:> 97 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Bio-Activity:Measured by its ability to cleave the fluorogenic peptide substrate, H-Lys(2-Aminobenzoyl)Pro-Pro-pNitroanilide(K(Abz)PP-pNA).
The specific activity is > 300 pmoles/min/μg.
Endotoxin:< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method

XPNPEP2 Background

Aminopeptidase P (APP) is a hydrolase specific for N-terminal imido bonds, which are common to several collagen degradation products, neuropeptides, vasoactive peptides, and cytokines. A membrane-bound and soluble form of this enzyme (XPNPEP2) have been identified as products of two separate genes. XPNPEP2, the X-linked gene that encodes membranous aminopeptidase P (APP), has been reported to associate with APP activity. The membrane aminopeptidase P (XPNPEP2) is largely limited in distribution to endothelia and brush border epithelia. APP and XPNPEP2 contain homologous blocks of sequence common to members of the "pita bread-fold" protein family, of which Escherichia coli methionine aminopeptidase is the prototype. The C-2399A variant in XPNPEP2 is associated with reduced APP activity and a higher incidence of AE-ACEi. XPNPEP2 mRNA was detected in fibroblasts that carry the translocation, suggesting that this gene at least partially escapes X inactivation. XPNPEP2 is a candidate gene for premature ovarian failure (POF).
