Mouse Renin, also known as Renin-1,is a member of the peptidase A1 amily. Renin is synthesized by the juxtaglomerular cells of the kidney in response to decreased blood pressure and sodium concentration. It cleaves angiotensinogen to generate angiotensin I, which can be further converted by angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) to angiotensin II. Angiotensin II is the active molecule of the reninangiotensin system that acts by binding to angiotensin receptors type 1 and 2 (AT1 and AT2),and has direct pathophysiological effects on the heart and peripheral vasculature. After secretion, inactive prorenin can be proteolytically activated by trypsin, cathepsin B, or other proteinases.
Recombinant Mouse REN1/Renin-1 Protein (His Tag)
Recombinant Mouse Renin is produced by our Mammalian expression system and the target gene encoding Leu22-Arg402 is expressed with a 10His tag at the C-terminus.
This product is provided as lyophilized powder which is shipped with ice packs.
> 95 % as determined by reducing SDS-PAGE.
< 1.0 EU per μg as determined by the LAL method.
|Stability and Storage||
Generally, lyophilized proteins are stable for up to 12 months when stored at -20 to -80℃. Reconstituted protein solution can be stored at 4-8℃ for 2-7 days. Aliquots of reconstituted samples are stable at < -20℃ for 3 months.
