|Other Names||Atrial natriuretic peptide-converting enzyme, 3421-, Corin, Heart-specific serine proteinase ATC2, Pro-ANP-converting enzyme, Transmembrane protease serine 10, Atrial natriuretic peptide-converting enzyme, N-terminal propeptide, Atrial natriuretic peptide-converting enzyme, activated protease fragment, Atrial natriuretic peptide-converting enzyme, 180 kDa soluble fragment, Atrial natriuretic peptide-converting enzyme, 160 kDa soluble fragment, Atrial natriuretic peptide-converting enzyme, 100 kDa soluble fragment, CORIN, CRN, TMPRSS10|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP6868c was selected from the Center region of human CORIN. 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||Serine-type endopeptidase involved in atrial natriuretic peptide hormone (NPPA) processing. Converts through proteolytic cleavage the non-functional propeptide NPPA into the active hormone, thereby regulating blood pressure in heart and promoting natriuresis, diuresis and vasodilation. Proteolytic cleavage of pro-NPPA also plays a role in female pregnancy by promoting trophoblast invasion and spiral artery remodeling in uterus. Also acts as a regulator of sodium reabsorption in kidney. May also process pro-NPPB the B-type natriuretic peptide.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single- pass type II membrane protein Note=May easily detached from the endothelial cell membrane Atrial natriuretic peptide-converting enzyme, 180 kDa soluble fragment: Secreted. Note=Soluble form produced following cleavage by ADAM10 Atrial natriuretic peptide-converting enzyme, 100 kDa soluble fragment: Secreted. Note=Soluble form produced following autocatalytic cleavage|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in heart. Expressed in heart myocytes. Also expressed in pregnant uterus. Detected in blood, in plasma as well as in serum (at protein level)|

CORIN is a member of the type II transmembrane serine protease class of the trypsin superfamily. Members of this family are composed of multiple structurally distinct domains. This protein converts pro-atrial natriuretic peptide to biologically active atrial natriuretic peptide, a cardiac hormone that regulates blood volume and pressure. This protein may also function as a pro-brain-type natriuretic peptide convertase.
