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.

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).
