CD13 Protein, Human, Recombinant (603 Met/Ile, His Tag): Product Information
> 97 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Measured by its ability to cleave the fluorogenic peptide substrate, Ala-7-amido-4-methylcoumarin (Ala-AMC)
. The specific activity is >2,500 pmoles/min/μg.
A DNA sequence encoding the metalloprotease domain (Lys 69-Lys 967，603 Met/Ile) of the mature form of human ANPEP (NP_001141.2) was expressed with N-terminal signal peptide and C-terminal polyhistidine tag.
The recombinant human ANPEP protein consists of 910 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 104.2 kDa. In SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions, the apparent molecular mass of rhANPEP is approximately 135-140 kDa due to glycosylation.
Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.3 Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose, mannitol and 0.01% Tween80 are added as protectants before lyophilization.
Please refer to the specific buffer information in the hard copy of CoA.
In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature. Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
Stability & Storage
Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -20℃ to -80℃ Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.

Aminopeptidase N (ANPEP or APN), also known as CD13, is a cell-surface metalloprotease located in the small-intestinal and renal microvillar membrane, as well as other plasma membranes. It belongs to the peptidase M1 family. CD13 plays a role in the final digestion of peptides generated from hydrolysis of proteins by gastric and pancreatic proteases and is involved in the metabolism of regulatory peptides by diverse cell types. CD13/APN is a potent regulator of angiogenesis which is essential for tumor invasion and metastasis, and its transcription in activated endothelial cells is induced by angiogenic growth factors via the RAS/MAPK pathway. In addition, this enzyme has been shown to participate in antigen processing and presentation, and accordingly, defects in this gene appear to be a cause of various types of leukemia or lymphoma and carcinomas.
