|Other Names||Carboxypeptidase B2, Carboxypeptidase U, CPU, Plasma carboxypeptidase B, pCPB, Thrombin-activable fibrinolysis inhibitor, TAFI, CPB2|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP6541c was selected from the Center region of human CPB2. 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||Cleaves C-terminal arginine or lysine residues from biologically active peptides such as kinins or anaphylatoxins in the circulation thereby regulating their activities. Down- regulates fibrinolysis by removing C-terminal lysine residues from fibrin that has already been partially degraded by plasmin.|
|Tissue Location||Plasma; synthesized in the liver.|

Carboxypeptidases are enzymes that hydrolyze C-terminal peptide bonds. The carboxypeptidase family includes metallo-, serine, and cysteine carboxypeptidases. According to their substrate specificity, these enzymes are referred to as carboxypeptidase A (cleaving aliphatic residues) or carboxypeptidase B (cleaving basic amino residues). CPB2 is activated by trypsin and acts on carboxypeptidase B substrates. After thrombin activation, the mature protein downregulates fibrinolysis. Polymorphisms have been described for its gene and its promoter region.
