Detects mouse Renin 1 in ELISAs and Western blots. In sandwich immunoassays, approximately 5% cross-reactivity with recombinant rat Renin is observed, and less than 0.2% cross-reactivity with recombinant human Renin is observed.
Renin in Mouse Kidney. Renin was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse kidney using Goat Anti-Mouse Renin 1 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF4277) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm in glomeruli and tubules. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Frozen Tissue Sections.

Mouse Renin is a secreted, 42‑47 kDa glycosylated member of the peptidase A1 family. It is an aspartyl protease that cleaves angiotensinogen to form angiotensin I. In mouse, there are two genes that code for Renin. One is in the submandibular gland and the other is in the kidney. The two mature Renin molecules are 95% amino acid (aa) identical. Renal Renin (Renin 1) is synthesized as a 381 aa proform (aa 22‑402). In the kidney, pro‑Renin is proteolytically cleaved after Thr71 to generate a mature enzyme. Mouse pro Renin shares 70% and 85% aa sequence identity with human and rat pro Renin, respectively.
