Kell blood group glycoprotein homolog or KEL, is an enzyme, part of the zinc endopeptidase of the neprilysin (NEP) group of proteins. KEL has a crucial part in the production of the potent bioactive ET-3, which also includes enzymes that are endothelin convertingenzymes (PEX, XCE, DINE &various NEP-like proteins). KEL uses a single disulfide bond to XK, a gated membranal transporter. The Kell antigen system that includes two proteins, is very crucial among blood group systems.
KEL Mouse produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 674 amino acids (49-713 aa) and having a molecular mass of 76.3kDa.
KEL is fused to a 9 amino acid His tag at C-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
The KEL solution (0.25mg/ml) contains 10% Glycerol and Phosphate-Buffered Saline (pH 7.4).
Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks.
Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 90.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
