Renin, Angiotensinogenase, EC 188.8.131.52, HNFJ2, Angiotensin-Forming Enzyme, Renin Precursor Renal, EC 3.4.23.
Renin is a highly specific endopeptidase which generates angiotensin I from angiotensinogen in the plasma. angiotensin I is an important regulator of blood pressure and electrolyte balance. Renin initiates a cascade of reactions that produce an elevation of blood pressure and increased sodium retention by the kidney.
Renin Human Recombinant produced in HEK cells is a single, glycosylated, polypeptide chain (Leu24-Arg406) containing a total of 393 amino acids, having a calculated molecular mass of 43.7kDa and fused to a 10 aa His tag at C-Terminus.
Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
REN was filtered (0.4µm) and lyophilized from 0.5mg/ml solution in phosphate buffered saline and 5% (w/v) trehalose.
It is recommended to add deionized water to prepare a working stock solution of approximately 0.5 mg/ml and let the lyophilized pellet dissolve completely. REN is not sterile! Please filter the product by an appropriate sterile filter before using it in the cell culture.
Store lyophilized protein at -20°C. Aliquot the product after reconstitution to avoid repeated freezing/thawing cycles. Reconstituted protein can be stored at 4°C for a limited period of time; it does not show any change after two weeks at 4°C.
