Protein markers are an essential component in biological research and drug development. Whether it is for protein electrophoresis or western blot, our pre-stained protein markers help you quickly determine the molecular weight of the target protein or evaluate the transfer efficiency.
Streptavidin is a tetrameric protein providing 4 high-affinity biotin binding sites. We offer a wide array of products pre-conjugated with streptavidin to support your research as well as biotinylated proteins.
Setting the corresponding isotype control antibody to detect non-specific binding can reduce the generation of false positive results and evaluate the possible influencing factors accurately in the drug development process. Explore our isotype controls for your research.
The efficacy of a therapeutic antibody depends on the Fab fragment and its binding activity to the target antigen, but also depends on the Fc fragment and its interaction with key Fc receptors.Therefore, candidates must be tested against a panel of receptors during antibody engineering. Explore our comprehensive collection of recombinant Fc receptor proteins!
Pseudoviruses are virus particles that have altered nucleic acid sequences within their genome to ensure they are replication-deficient and non-pathogenic. Explore our catalog of pseudoviruses & services!
Renin is also known as REN and angiotensinogenase, is a circulating enzyme that participates in the body's renin-angiotensin system (RAS), and plays an essential role in the elevation of arterial blood pressure and increased sodium retention by the kidney. Renin activates the renin-angiotensin system by cleaving angiotensinogen, produced by the liver, to yield angiotensin I, which is further converted into angiotensin II by ACE, the angiotensin-converting enzyme primarily within the capillaries of the lungs. Renin is secreted from kidney cells, which are activated via signaling from the macula densa, which responds to the rate of fluid flow through the distal tubule, by decreases in renal perfusion pressure (through stretch receptors in the vascular wall), and by sympathetic nervous stimulation, mainly through beta-1 receptor activation. Renin can bind to ATP6AP2, which results in a fourfold increase in the conversion of angiotensinogen to angiotensin I over that shown by soluble renin. In addition, renin binding results in phosphorylation of serine and tyrosine residues of ATP6AP2. The level of renin mRNA appears to be modulated by the binding of HADHB, HuR and CP1 to a regulatory region in the 3' UTR. An over-active renin-angiotension system leads to vasoconstriction and retention of sodium and water. These effects lead to hypertension. Therefore, renin inhibitors can be used for the treatment of hypertension.
