Detects human Carboxypeptidase B2/CPB2 in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In Western blots, approximately 20% cross-reactivity
with recombinant human (rh) Carboxypeptidase A1, A4, recombinant mouse (rm)
Carboxypeptidase A1, A4, B1, and 5% cross-reactivity with rhCarboxypeptidase B1,
B2, and E is observed under reducing conditions. No cross-reactivity with any
of these proteins is observed under nonreducing conditions.

Detection of Human Carboxypeptidase B2/CPB2 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human liver tissue. PVDF Membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Human Carboxypeptidase B2/CPB2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6036) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). Specific bands were detected for Carboxypeptidase B2/CPB2 at approximately 45 and 50 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under non-reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: Carboxypeptidase B2/CPB2
CPB2 (Carboxypeptidase B2; also CPU and TAFI) is a secreted, 50-60 kDa glycoprotein member of the peptidase M14 family of enzymes. It is expressed by hepatocytes (60 kDa) and platelets (50 kDa), with MW differences attributable to glycosylation. CPB2 is cleaved by thrombin and plasmin, generating a 36 kDa, relatively insoluble nonglycosylated enzymatically active fragment (TAFIa). Active CPB2 removes C-terminal Lys residues from fibrin, thereby interrupting plasmin generation and promoting fibrin polymerization. Human CPB2 (proprecursor/zymogen) is 401 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains a prosequence (aa 23-114) and an active fragment (aa 115-423) that acts on C-terminal Lys or Arg residues. There is one potential isoform variant that shows a deletion of aa 198-234 accompanied by a 16 aa substitution for aa 382-423. Over aa 23-423, human CPB2 shares 85% aa identity with mouse CPB2.
