  ANTIBODIES  

(anti-Human and others as indicated)

RDI Divison of researchd Industries Intl  offers a wide line of  antibodies. Since no one antibody works best for all applications (neutralization, blotting, ELISA, etc), we offer many different types of antibodies to help solve this problem. Please inquire for other applications or types of antibodies not listed below.


Mouse anti-Carboxypeptidase E Monoclonal ab

cat# RDI-CARBYEabm       $438.00/vial 50ug

        RDI-CARBYEabm-1   $750.00/vial 150ug

Background: Carboxypeptidase E (CPE), also known as carboxypeptidase H   and enkephalin convertase, is found as both a membrane-bound   and a soluble glycoprotein in neuroendocrine tissues and adrenal-gland chromaffin granules. The C-terminus forms an amphiphilic a-helix, suggesting that this region is responsible for the membrane-bound form. Evidence suggests the active form of CPE is located in the secretory vesicles. CPE appears to have several functions. It is an exopeptidase that cleaves neuropeptides with C-terminal basic amino acids, producing an active form of the peptide. It has also been proposed that membrane-bound CPE is a sorting receptor for regulated secretory pathway (RSP) proteins in the TGN pituitary Golgi and secretory granule membranes. RSP proteins primarily consist of hormones and neuropeptides. Mice that carry a mutation in the CPE gene Cpefat display endocrine disorders such as obesity, infertility, and hyperproinsulinemia. Furthermore, the same endocrine disorders are observed in Cpefat mice where the CPE gene has been effaced by antisense RNA.
