|Other Accession||P35559, Q9JHR7, Q24K02|
|Other Names||Insulin-degrading enzyme, Abeta-degrading protease, Insulin protease, Insulinase, Insulysin, IDE|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence is selected from aa 421-435 of HUMAN IDE|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Plays a role in the cellular breakdown of insulin, IAPP, glucagon, bradykinin, kallidin and other peptides, and thereby plays a role in intercellular peptide signaling. Degrades amyloid formed by APP and IAPP. May play a role in the degradation and clearance of naturally secreted amyloid beta-protein by neurons and microglia.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Cell membrane. Secreted. Note=Present at the cell surface of neuron cells The membrane-associated isoform is approximately 5 kDa larger than the known cytosolic isoform|

IDE belongs to a protease family responsible for intercellular peptide signalling. Though its role in the cellular processing of insulin has not yet been defined, insulin-degrading enzyme is thought to be involved in the termination of the insulin response.
