Mouse ASAH2 Protein Product Information
Synonym:AI585898, Asah2
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the Lumenal domain (Thr 34-Thr 756) of mouse ASAH2 (NP_061300.1) precursor was expressed with a N-terminal polyhistidine tag.
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.
Mouse ASAH2 Protein QC Testing
Purity:> 97 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Bio-Activity:Measured by its ability to hydrolyze the substrate C12:0 ceramide into sphingosine and dodecanoic acid.
The specific activity is > 3,000 pmoles/min/μg.
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℃

ASAH2 Background

ASAH2 (N-acylsphingosine amidohydrolase 2), also known as neutral ceramidase, is a type II integral membrane protein that can be cleaved to produce a soluble secreted protein. The enzyme is abundant in the brush border membranes of the intestine, and also expressed in several tissues such as kidney, brain and liver. The primary structure of ASAH2/neutral ceramidase is highly conserved from bacteria to humans, however, there is a clear difference in the molecular architecture. The murine ASAH2 possesses ‘amucin box’, a Ser/Thr/Pro-rich domain glycosylated with O-glycans which is necessary to retain the enzyme on the plasma membrane as a type II integral protein. The major physiological function of ASAH2/neutral ceramidase is the metabolism of dietary sphingolipids, and thus plays a role in the generation of messenger molecules such as sphingosine and sphingosine 1-phosphate.
