Technical Data
E2230-15
Elastase, Neutrophil
Description:
The primary role of neutrophils is to destroy any foreign particles, either by phagocytosis or by release of bacteriostatic agents. Neutrophils contain high concentrations of the serine proteinases neutrophil elastase that is stored in intracellular vacuoles termed the azurophilic granules.This proteinase is a major protein constituent of neutrophils, comprising around 1-3pg per neutrophil.Their primary role is to digest any pathogens that the neutrophil has phagocytosed.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.

Specificity:
Recognizes human neutrophil elastase. Does not react with the 3 homologous neutrophil neutral serine proteases, cathepsin G, esterase N and proteinase 3. Inhibits the elastinolytic activity of elastase.
