Technical Data
Angiotensin Converting Enzyme 2, Ectodomain (ACE2, ACE-2, ACE-related Carboxypeptidase, Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Homolog, ACEH, DKFZP434A014, EC 3.4.17, OTTHUMP00000022963) (Biotin)
Angiogensin I Converting Enzyme-2 (ACE-2) is a type I transmembrane zinc protease that cleaves angiotensins I and II to produce vasodilatory and anti-proliferative peptides. The balance between ACE-1 and ACE-2 activity is critical for maintaining cardiovascular, renal, and pulmonary function. ACE-2 isoforms of 75kD and 120kD are differentially expressed between lung and kidney, respectively, and a shed soluble form is generated by TACE/ADAM17 mediated cleavage. ACE-2 also functions as the cellular uptake receptor for the SARS coronoavirus. Within the extracellular domain, human ACE-2 shares 83% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat ACE-2.

Suitable for use in Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 0.1-0.2ug/ml. The detection limit is ~1ng/lane under non-reducing and reducing conditions. Shows <1% crossreactivity with recombinant human ACE.
Immunohistochemistry: 5-15ug/ml
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at -20C. Stable for 12 months at -20C. Reconstitute with sterile TBS, pH 7.3, 0.1% BSA. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Reconstituted product is stable for 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
