Background: Neprilysin-2/MMEL1

Neprilysin-2 is a zinc protease of the neprilysin (NEP) family, which also includes NEP, ECE-2, PEX, DINE, Kell and several NEP-like proteins (1). It is encoded by the MMEL1 gene in the human genome and is also known as soluble secreted endopeptidase (SEP), Neprilysin-like 1 and Neprilysin-2 (2). Highly expressed in testis, the cDNA predicted a type II transmembrane protein with a short cytoplasmic tail and a large ectodomain. Both membrane-bound and soluble forms were comparable with regard to model substrates, pH optima and inhibitor profiles. The ectodomain of human Neprilysin-2/MMEL1 was expressed with an N-terminal His tag and purified.
