Application Abreviews Notes
  • Application notes
    WB: 1/1000 for using colorimetric substrates such as BCIP/NBT. WB: 1/5000 for chemiluminescent substrates. Higher concentrations of antibody may be needed for samples from more distantly related species. Predicted molecular weight: 84 kDa. Dilution optimised using Chromogenic detection. Not yet tested in other applications. Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • Function
      Membrane metallopeptidase that sheds many membrane-bound proteins. Known substrates include: FGF19, VGFA, IL1B, IL18, procollagen I and III, E-cadherin, KLK7, gastrin, ADAM10, tenascin-C. The presence of several pro-inflammatory cytokine among substrates implicate MEP1B in inflammation. It is also involved in tissue remodeling due to its capability to degrade extracellular matrix components.
    • Tissue specificity
      The major site of expression is the brush border membrane of small intestinal and kidney epithelial cells.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the peptidase M12A family.
      Contains 1 EGF-like domain.
      Contains 1 MAM domain.
      Contains 1 MATH domain.
    • Post-translational
      N-glycosylated; contains high mannose and/or complex biantennary structures.
      O-glycosylation protect the C-terminal region from proteolytic cleavage and diminish secretion, this seems to be specific to human.
      Proteolytically activated by trypsin in the intestinal lumen and kallikrein-related peptidases in other tissues.
    • Cellular localization
      Cell membrane. Secreted. Homodimers are essentially membrane bound but may also be shed from the surface by ADAM-10 and ADAM-17.
