Scientific Data Images for Mouse Aminopeptidase N/CD13 Antibody

Aminopeptidase N/CD13 antibody in Mouse Splenocytes by Immunocytochemistry (ICC).

Aminopeptidase N/CD13 in Mouse Splenocytes.

Aminopeptidase N/CD13 was detected in immersion fixed mouse splenocytes using Goat Anti-Mouse Aminopeptidase N/CD13 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2335) at 15 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL001) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm.

Aminopeptidase N/CD13 antibody in Mouse Kidney by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P).

Aminopeptidase N/CD13 in Mouse Kidney.

Aminopeptidase N/CD13 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of mouse kidney using Goat Anti-Mouse Aminopeptidase N/CD13 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2335) at 0.1 µg/mL for 1 hour at room temperature followed by incubation with the Anti-Goat IgG VisUCyte™ HRP Polymer Antibody (Catalog # VC004). Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using DAB (brown) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to apical membrane.

Background: Aminopeptidase N/CD13

The mouse Anpep gene encodes Aminopeptidase N (APN), which is also known as microsomal aminopeptiase, alanyl aminopeptidase, Aminopeptidase M, CD13, or membrane protein p161 (1‑3). The deduced amino acid sequence of mouse APN consists of a short cytoplasmic tail (residues 2 to 8), a transmembrane region (residue 9 to 32), a Ser/Thr rich region and a zinc metalloprotease domain (residues 69 to 966). Widely expressed in many cells, tissues and species, APN cleaves the N-terminal amino acids from bioactive peptides, leading to their inactivation or degradation. The roles of APN in many fields, such as neuroscience, hematopoeitic cells, immune system, angiogenesis, cancer and viral infection, have been reviewed (4).
