|Other Names||Endoplasmic reticulum aminopeptidase 1, 3411-, ARTS-1, Adipocyte-derived leucine aminopeptidase, A-LAP, Aminopeptidase PILS, Puromycin-insensitive leucyl-specific aminopeptidase, PILS-AP, Type 1 tumor necrosis factor receptor shedding aminopeptidase regulator, ERAP1, APPILS, ARTS1, KIAA0525|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7859c was selected from the Center region of human ARTS1. 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.|
|Synonyms||APPILS, ARTS1, KIAA0525|
|Function||Aminopeptidase that plays a central role in peptide trimming, a step required for the generation of most HLA class I- binding peptides. Peptide trimming is essential to customize longer precursor peptides to fit them to the correct length required for presentation on MHC class I molecules. Strongly prefers substrates 9-16 residues long. Rapidly degrades 13-mer to a 9-mer and then stops. Preferentially hydrolyzes the residue Leu and peptides with a hydrophobic C-terminus, while it has weak activity toward peptides with charged C-terminus. May play a role in the inactivation of peptide hormones. May be involved in the regulation of blood pressure through the inactivation of angiotensin II and/or the generation of bradykinin in the kidney.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein|

Aminopeptidases play a role in the metabolism of several peptides that may be involved in blood pressure and the pathogenesis of essential hypertension. Adipocyte-derived leucine aminopeptidase (ALAP) is a member of the M1 family of zinc metallopeptidases.
