|A DNA sequence encoding the human DPEP2 (AAH24021.1) (Met1-Ser376) was expressed, fused with the Fc region of human IgG1 at the C-terminus.|
|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.
|> 95 % as determined by SDS-PAGE|
|< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method|
|Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃|
|The recombinant human DPEP2/Fc is a disulfide-linked homodimer. The reduced monomer comprises 585 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 65 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of the protein is approximately 43-49 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.|
|Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4|
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.
|Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.|
|A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.|
DPEP2 (MBD-2) belongs to the membrane-bound dipeptidase family. There are three members of this family as membrane-bound dipeptidase-1 (MBD-1),membrane-bound dipeptidase-2 (MBD-2) and membrane-bound dipeptidase-3 (MBD-3).MBD-2 is expressed at highest levels in lung, heart, and testis and at some what lower levels in spleen.MBD-2 is membrane-bound through a glycosylphosphatidyl-inositol linkage and probably is a metalloprotease which hydrolyzes leukotriene D4 (LTD4) into leukotriene E4 (LTE4).It is generally recognized that rapid cleavage of LTD4 is important in inactivating the broncho-and vaso-constrictive effects of cysteinyl LTs in asthmatic and inflammatory processes.
