Introduction

Latexin enzyme is a carboxypeptidase A inhibitor that is highly expressed in the heart, prostate, ovary, kidney, pancrease, brain and colon. Latexin has no noticeable sequence resemblance with plant and parasite inhibitors, however it is related to a human putative tumor suppressor protein, TIG1. Latexin is down-regulated in the presenilin-1-deficient mouse brain, thus putatively playing a role in Alzheimer's disease.

Description

Recombinant Human Latexin produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 222 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 25.7kDa. Latexin is purified by conventional chromatography techniques.

Source

Escherichia Coli.
