The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use 5µl for 106 cells. ab91535-Mouse monoclonal IgG2b, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
FunctionThermolysin-like specificity, but is almost confined on acting on polypeptides of up to 30 amino acids. Biologically important in the destruction of opioid peptides such as Met- and Leu-enkephalins by cleavage of a Gly-Phe bond. Able to cleave angiotensin-1, angiotensin-2 and angiotensin 1-9. Involved in the degradation of atrial natriuretic factor (ANF). Displays UV-inducible elastase activity toward skin preelastic and elastic fibers.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the peptidase M13 family.
