Description

ACE2 is a member of the angiotensin-converting enzyme family of dipeptidyl carboxydipeptidases. It catalyzes the cleavage of the decapeptide angiotensin I into angiotensin-(1-9) and angiotensin II (potent vasoconstrictor) into the vasodilator angiotensin-(1-7). ACE2 is a type I membrane protein that functions as a carboxypeptidase. It cleaves between a proline and a single hydrophobic/basic residue from the COOH-terminus of its substrates. The human full-length enzyme possesses 805 amino acids and the ECD includes amino acids 1–740. ACE2 is a zinc metalloprotease with considerable homology to angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE), both enzymes contain the typical HEXXH zinc-binding motif, ACE has two catalytic sites and ACE2 has only one, and ACE2 is not inhibited by ACE inhibitors captopril, lisinopril, and enalaprilat. Studies in mice showed that disruption of ACE2 induced a severe cardiac contractility defect and increased angiotensin II levels in heart. Human ACE2 has been identified as the receptor for SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome)-coronavirus. ACE2 binds to the coronavirus S protein present on the surface of the virion. The S protein is a type I protein with four domains that include an S1 (receptor binding subunit), an S2 (membrane-fusion subunit), a transmembrane, and a short intracellular domain. The S protein forms a trimer showing a big protrusion from the virus surface. Studies in SARS-CoV-ACE2 interactions showed that specific amino acids (Lys31 and Lys353) in human ACE2 were critical to virus-receptor binding, and naturally selected viral mutations in S1 (K479N and S487T) enhanced the affinity of S1 for human ACE2.

Materials

  • Assay buffer: 75 mM Tris, 1 M NaCl, pH 7.5
  • Recombinant human ACE2
  • Substrate: MCA-Tyr-Val-Ala-Asp-Ala-Pro-Lys(DNP)-OH, 10 mM stock in DMSO (Enzo Life Sciences, Cat. No. ALX-260-023-M001 or equivalent)
  • F16 Black Maxisorp plate (Nunc, Cat. No. 475515)
  • Fluorescent plate reader (Model: SpectraMax M3 by Molecular Devices) or equivalent

Procedure

  1. Dilute the recombinant human ACE2 to 0.2 ng/µL in assay buffer.
  2. Dilute the substrate to 40 µM in assay buffer.
  3. Load in a black well plate 50 µL of 0.2 ng/µL of recombinant human ACE2, and start the reaction by adding 50 µL of 40 µM substrate. As a control load 50 µL of 40 µM substrate with 50 µL of assay buffer.
  4. Read at excitation and emission wavelengths of 320 nm and 405 nm (top read), respectively in kinetic mode for 5 minutes.
  5. Calculate specific activity:


Specific Activity (pmol/min/µg) = Adjusted Vmax* (RFU/min) x Conversion Factor** (pmol/RFU)
                                                                                           amount of enzyme (µg)

How does the activity of your recombinant proteins compare to competitors?

We quality control each and every lot of recombinant protein. Not only do we check its bioactivity, but we also compare it against other commercially available recombinant proteins. We make sure each recombinant protein’s activity is at least as good as or better than the competition’s. In order to provide you with the best possible product, we ensure that our testing process is rigorous and thorough. If you’re curious and eager to make the switch to BioLegend recombinants, contact your sales representative today!

What is the specific activity or ED50 of my recombinant protein?

The specific activity range of the protein is indicated on the product datasheets. Because the exact activity values on a per unit basis can largely fluctuate depending on a number of factors, including the nature of the assay, cell density, age of cells/passage number, culture media used, and end user technique, the specific activity is best defined as a range and we guarantee the specific activity of all our lots will be within the range indicated on the datasheet. Please note this only applies to recombinants labeled for use in bioassays. ELISA standard recombinant proteins are not recommended for bioassay usage as they are not tested for these applications.

Have your recombinants been tested for stability?

Our testing shows that the recombinant proteins are able to withstand room temperature for a week without losing activity. In addition the recombinant proteins were also found to withstand four cycles of freeze and thaw without losing activity.

Does specific activity of a recombinant protein vary between lots?

Specific activity will vary for each lot and for the type of experiment that is done to validate it, but all passed lots will have activity within the established ED50 range for the product and we guarantee that our products will have lot-to-lot consistency. Please conduct an experiment-specific validation to find the optimal ED50 for your system.

How do you convert activity as an ED50 in ng/ml to a specific activity in Units/mg?
Use formula Specific activity (Units/mg) = 10e6/ ED50 (ng/mL)
