Molecule Mass
The recombinant human DPEP2/Fc is a disulfide-linked homodimer. The reduced monomer comprises 585 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 65 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of the protein is approximately 43-49 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose, mannitol and 0.01% Tween80 are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.
2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
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.

DPEP2 Background Information

DPEP2 (MBD-2) belongs to the membrane-bound dipeptidase family. There are three members of this family as membrane-bound dipeptidase-1 (MBD-1),membrane-bound dipeptidase-2 (MBD-2) and membrane-bound dipeptidase-3 (MBD-3).MBD-2 is expressed at highest levels in lung, heart, and testis and at some what lower levels in spleen.MBD-2 is membrane-bound through a glycosylphosphatidyl-inositol linkage and probably is a metalloprotease which hydrolyzes leukotriene D4 (LTD4) into leukotriene E4 (LTE4).It is generally recognized that rapid cleavage of LTD4 is important in inactivating the broncho-and vaso-constrictive effects of cysteinyl LTs in asthmatic and inflammatory processes.
