Neutrophil elastase (human), (purified)

BML-SE284-0100 100 µg 323.00 USD
Do you need bulk/larger quantities?
Functions in inflammation. Can cleave a variety of proteins, including fibrous elastin, collagen, clotting factors, TNF-α , and α 1- antichymotrypsin. Because of its potential roles in inflammatory diseases such as emphysema and cystic fibrosis, it is a target for drug discovery.

Product Specification

Alternative Name:Leukocyte elastase, LE
Source:Isolated from human neutrophils. Active enzyme.
UniProt ID:P08246
Purity:≥95% (SDS-PAGE). Although this is in highly purified form, and the source material tested negative for HbsAg, anti-HBc, anti-HCV, and anti-HIV-1 and -2, handle this product with all due precautions.
Specific Activity:20-22 U/mg protein. One unit will hydrolyze 1.0 µmole of MeOSuc-Ala-Ala-Pro-Val-pNA (Prod. No. BML-P213) per minute, at 25°C, pH 8.0.
Application Notes:Useful for inhibitor screening, kinetic studies, and cleavage of substrates in vitro or in tissue culture.
Shipping:Shipped on Dry Ice
Long Term Storage:-20°C
Use/Stability:This enzyme is stable when stored under the above conditions. Procedures such as dilution of the enzyme followed by refreezing could lead to loss of activity.
Handling:Avoid freeze/thaw cycles. After reconstitution, prepare aliquots and store at -80°C.
Scientific Background:Neutrophil elastase, a serine protease found in polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs), functions in inflammation.
