|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||NP_071745, 64167|
|Calculated MW||110462 Da|
|Other Names||Endoplasmic reticulum aminopeptidase 2, 3.4.11.-, Leukocyte-derived arginine aminopeptidase, L-RAP, ERAP2, LRAP|
|Format||0.5 mg IgG/ml in Tris saline (20mM Tris pH7.3, 150mM NaCl), 0.02% sodium azide, with 0.5% bovine serum albumin|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Goat Anti-ERAP2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Aminopeptidase that plays a central role in peptide trimming, a step required for the generation of most HLA class I- binding peptides. Peptide trimming is essential to customize longer precursor peptides to fit them to the correct length required for presentation on MHC class I molecules. Preferentially hydrolyzes the basic residues Arg and Lys.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitously expressed. Highly expressed in spleen and leukocytes.|

Aminopeptidases hydrolyze N-terminal amino acids of proteins or peptide substrates. Major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecules rely on aminopeptidases such as ERAP1 (MIM 606832) and LRAP to trim precursors to antigenic peptides in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) following cleavage in the cytoplasm by tripeptidyl peptidase II (TPP2; MIM 190470) (Tanioka et al., 2003 [PubMed 12799365]).
