Human Renin Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Human
Specificity
Detects both pro and mature forms of human Renin in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs and Western blots, approximately 20% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse Renin-1 is observed.
Source
Polyclonal Sheep IgG
Purification
Antigen Affinity-purified
Immunogen
Mouse myeloma cell line NS0-derived recombinant human Renin
Leu24-Arg406
Accession # P60016
Formulation
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.

Applications

Recommended Concentration
Sample
Western Blot
0.1 µg/mL
Recombinant Human Renin (Catalog # 4090-AS)
Immunohistochemistry
5-15 µg/mL
See below
Immunoprecipitation
25 µg/mL
Conditioned cell culture medium spiked with Recombinant Human Renin (Catalog # 4090‑AS), see our available Western blot detection antibodies
Neutralization
Measured by its ability to neutralize Recombinant Human Renin (10 µg/mL, Catalog # 4090-AS) cleavage of the fluorogenic peptide substrate Renin Substrate I (10 µM). The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 100 µg/mL.

Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.

Renin in Human Kidney. Renin was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human kidney using Sheep Anti-Human Renin Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF4090) at 10 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Sheep HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS019) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

Background: Renin

Human Renin is a member of the aspartyl proteinase family produced largely in part by the juxtaglomerular cells in the kidney (1). Renin differs from the other members of this class by having a pH optimum near the neutral pH region with native substrates instead of a pH 2.0 to 3.4 range (2). This more neutral pH optimum allows it to be functional in the plasma. Renin also has a very high selectivity for substrates due to a long peptide recognition on either side of the peptide bond undergoing cleavage. An octapeptide substrate was the minimum length to be cleaved by Renin. Renin plays a crucial role in the regulation of blood pressure and salt balance through the cleavage of angiotensinogen, which is the only known physiological substrate of Renin. Renin releases the decapeptide angiotensin I, which in turn is further converted to vasoactive hormone angiotensin II by angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE). Renin is produced as prorenin with 43 pro residues at the N‑terminal of mature Renin. The inactive prorenin becomes activated proteolytically by trypsin, cathepsin B, or other proteinases.
