Angiotensinase-C, PRCP, Proline Carboxypeptidase.
PRCP is a plasma protein which takes part in the cleavage of C-terminal amino acids linked to proline in proteinfor example angiotensin-2 & 3 at acidic pHenvironment rather than at neutral pHwhich exhibit less activity. This cleavage is important since Angiotensin-2 takes part in regulation of blood pressure & electrolyte balance which is essential to hypertension.
PRCP Human Recombinant produced in HEK cells is a single, glycosylated, polypeptide chain (22-496 a.a) containing a total of 481 amino acids, having a molecular mass of 54.3 kDa.
PRCP is fused to a 6 amino acid His-tag at C-terminus,and is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
The PRCP solution (0.25mg/ml) contains 30% Glycerol and Phosphate-Buffered Saline (pH 7.4).
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 95% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Safety Data Sheet
Specific activity is > 3,000 pmol/min/μg, and is defined as the amount of enzyme that converts 1pmole of Z-ProAla-OH/min. at pH-4 at 25˚C.
