Human Carboxypeptidase A1/CPA1 Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Detects human Carboxypeptidase A1/CPA1 in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs, approximately 40% cross‑reactivity with recombinant mouse CPA1 is observed and less than 10% cross-reactivity with recombinant human CPB1 is observed.
Polyclonal Goat IgG
Antigen Affinity-purified
Mouse myeloma cell line NS0-derived recombinant human Carboxypeptidase A1/CPA1
Accession # P15085
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied either lyophilized or as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.

Background: Carboxypeptidase A1/CPA1

Carboxypeptidase A1 encoded by the CPA1 gene cleaves the C-terminal amide or ester bond of peptides that have a free C-terminal carboxyl group (1). It prefers the C-terminal residues with aromatic or branched aliphatic side chains including Phe, Tyr, Trp, Leu or Ile. It is important in the degradation of food proteins to produce essential amino acids such as Phe and Trp. The deduced amino acid sequence of human CPA1 consists of a signal peptide (residues 1 to 16), a pro region (residue 17 to 110), and a mature chain (residues 111 to 419). The purified rhCPA1 corresponds to the pro form which can be activated.
