The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 75 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
FunctionIntramembrane-cleaving aspartic protease (I-CLiP) that may be able to cleave type II membrane signal peptides in the hydrophobic plane of the membrane.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the peptidase A22B family. Contains 1 PA (protease associated) domain.
DomainThe PAL motif is required for normal active site conformation. The catalytic domains embedded in the membrane are in the opposite orientation to that of the presenilin protein family; therefore, it is predicted to cleave type II-oriented substrate peptides like the prototypic protease SPP.
