|Other Names||Minor histocompatibility antigen H13, 3423-, Intramembrane protease 1, IMP-1, IMPAS-1, hIMP1, Presenilin-like protein 3, Signal peptide peptidase, HM13, H13, IMP1, PSL3, SPP|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP6314a was selected from the N-term region of human SPP. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized 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.|
|Synonyms||H13, IMP1, PSL3, SPP|
|Function||Catalyzes intramembrane proteolysis of some signal peptides after they have been cleaved from a preprotein, resulting in the release of the fragment from the ER membrane into the cytoplasm. Required to generate lymphocyte cell surface (HLA-E) epitopes derived from MHC class I signal peptides. May play a role in graft rejection (By similarity). May be necessary for the removal of the signal peptide that remains attached to the hepatitis C virus core protein after the initial proteolytic processing of the polyprotein. Involved in the intramembrane cleavage of the integral membrane protein PSEN1 (PubMed:11714810, PubMed:12077416, PubMed:12145199, PubMed:14741365). Cleaves the integral membrane protein XBP1 isoform 1 in a DERL1/RNF139- dependent manner (PubMed:25239945).|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed with highest levels in kidney, liver, placenta, lung, leukocytes and small intestine and reduced expression in heart and skeletal muscle. Expressed abundantly in the CNS with highest levels in thalamus and medulla|

SPP, which localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum, catalyzes intramembrane proteolysis of some signal peptides after they have been cleaved from a preprotein. This activity is required to generate signal sequence-derived human lymphocyte antigen-E epitopes that are recognized by the immune system, and to process hepatitis C virus core protein. This protein is an integral membrane protein with sequence motifs characteristic of the presenilin-type aspartic proteases.
