Neprilysin is a type II transmembrane glycoprotein zinc-dependent metalloproteinase with broad expression in the body. It is a neutral endopeptidase and cleaves peptides on amino sides of hydrophobic residues. Neprilysin has activity in vasoactive peptides (adrenomodullin, angiotensin I, angiotensin II), natriurietic peptides (ANP, BNP, CNP, urodilatin), bradikynin, kallidin, endothelin, neurokinin A, neuropeptide Y, and substance P. Also, it has activity in amyloid β, galanin, bombesin-like peptides, adrenocorticotrophic hormone, gonadotropin-releasing hormone, α-melanocyte stimulating hormone, and oxytocyne. In addition, it has activity in peptides associated with digestion and metabolism (cholecystokinin, gastrin-releasing peptide, glucagon, and glucagon-like peptides). The recombinant protein is an antigen for common acute lymphocitic leukemia. Decrease of neprilysin has been associated with early stages of Alzheimer's disease, since neprilysin has been identified as a main physiological amyloid β peptide-degrading enzyme. Neprilysin is also known as acute lymphocytic leukemia antigen, and it is expressed in normal precursor B cells (in bone marrow) and normal germinal centers B cells.Product Details

Human Neprilysin Enzymatic Assay
Human Neprilysin (CD10) activity is measured by its ability to cleave the fluorogenic peptide substrate MCA-Arg-Pro-Pro-Gly-Phe-Ser-Ala-Phe-Lys(DNP)-OH. The increase of the product is monitored by an increase in intensity of fluorescence at 405 nm with excitation at 320 nm. Perform the assay rapidly. The specific activity is > 1500 pmol/min/µg in the presence of 0.005 µg of recombinant human Neprilysin.

Activity Assay Procedure
- Dilute the substrate in assay buffer at 20 µM. Wrap the substrate container in aluminium foil.
- In assay buffer, prepare 50 µL of serial dilutions of human Neprilysin. Start at a concentration of 3.2 µg/mL and dilute 1 to 2 ten times after.
- Add 50 µL of 20 µM substrate to wells with 50 µL of prepared dilutions.
- Include a substrate blank with 50 µL of assay buffer and 50 µL of 20 µM substrate without any human Neprilysin.
- Read at excitation and emission wavelengths of 320 nm and 405 nm, respectively, in kinetic mode for 5 minutes.
- Calculate specific activity using the following formula:
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)
