Carboxypeptidase E, Carboxypeptidase H, CPH, CPE, CPE Human, Enkephalin convertase, Prohormone-processing carboxypeptidase.
Carboxypeptidase-E (CPE ) is a carboxypeptidase that cleaves C-terminal amino acid residues and is involved in the biosynthesis of peptide hormones and neurotransmitters. CPE is a peripheral membrane protein. CPE specifically connects regulated secretory pathway proteins, including prohormones, but constitutively secreted proteins. Mutations in CPE are implicated in type II diabetes.
CPE Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 457 amino acids (43-476 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 51.4kDa. CPE is fused to a 23 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile filtered colorless solution.
CPE protein solution (0.5mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0), 0.15M NaCl, 10% glycerol and 1mM DTT.
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 85.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
