|Other Names||Carboxypeptidase E, CPE, Carboxypeptidase H, CPH, Enkephalin convertase, Prohormone-processing carboxypeptidase, CPE|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7657b was selected from the C-term region of human CPE. 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||Removes residual C-terminal Arg or Lys remaining after initial endoprotease cleavage during prohormone processing. Processes proinsulin.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 1: Cytoplasmic vesicle, secretory vesicle membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Secreted. Note=Associated with the secretory granule membrane through direct binding to lipid rafts in intragranular conditions.|
|Tissue Location||Isoform 2, but not isoform 1, is overexpressed in hepatocellular carcinoma (at protein level), as well as in other tumors, including pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas|

CPE is a carboxypeptidase that cleaves C-terminal amino acid residues and is involved in the biosynthesis of peptide hormones and neurotransmitters, including insulin. It is a peripheral membrane protein. The protein specifically binds regulated secretory pathway proteins, including prohormones, but not constitutively secreted proteins. Mutations in CPE gene are implicated in type II diabetes.
