|Other Names||Dipeptidyl peptidase 8, DP8, Dipeptidyl peptidase IV-related protein 1, DPRP-1, Dipeptidyl peptidase VIII, DPP VIII, Prolyl dipeptidase DPP8, DPP8, DPRP1|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP6506a was selected from the N-term region of human DPP8. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|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||Dipeptidyl peptidase that cleaves off N-terminal dipeptides from proteins having a Pro or Ala residue at position 2. May play a role in T-cell activation and immune function.|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitously expressed, with highest levels in testis, placenta, prostate, muscle and brain|

DPP8 is a member of the peptidase S9B family, a small family of dipeptidyl peptidases that are able to cleave peptide substrates at a prolyl bond. The protein shares similarity with dipeptidyl peptidase IV in that it is ubiquitously expressed, and hydrolyzes the same substrates. These similarities suggest that, like dipeptidyl peptidase IV, this protein may play a role in T-cell activation and immune function.
