Carboxypeptidase B from Porcine, Recombinant

Cat No.
NATE-1147
Description
Carboxypeptidase B (or peptidyl-L-lysine (-L-arginine) hydrolase) catalyzes the hydrolysis of the basic amino acids, lysine, arginine, and ornithine from the C-terminal position of polypeptides. It has been shown to be a single polypeptide of 34 kDa Da. Trypsin is capable of converting native enzyme to the active enzyme, carboxypeptidase B II in vitro. The optimum pH is found to be 9.0. The enzyme may be used for sequence analysis by successive cleavage of C-terminal basic amino acids. It can also be used as a serum marker for the diagnosis of acute pancreatitis.

Product Overview
Carboxypeptidase B (EC 3.4.17.2), also well known as protaminase, pancreatic procarboxy-peptidase B (PCPB), tissue carboxypeptidase B, peptidyl-L-lysine (L-arginine) hydrolaseis a highly pancreas-specific protein (PASP), and has been identified previously as a serum marker for acute pancreatitis and pancreatic graft rejection. As the prototype for those exopeptidases that cleave off basic C-terminal residues, CPB1 specifically cleaves the C-terminal Arg and Lysresidues with a preference for Arg. The B1 and B2 forms of procarboxypeptidase B differ from each other mainly in isoelectric point. The deduced amino acid sequence of CPB predicts a 416-amino acid preproenzyme consisting of a 15-aasignal peptide, a 95-aa activation peptide and a 307-aa mature chain. The secreted CPB zymogen is converted to enzymatically active CPB by limited proteolysis by trypsin.
