Elafin | Elastase-Specific Inhibitor from Human Skin
The human derived polypeptide Elafin is expressed in human skin, lungs, and mammary glands. It was first isolated from human epithelia. Elafin is a reversible, strong binding inhibitor of human leukocyte proteinase and elastase. Elafin represents a new type of elastase inhibitor with anti-microbial activity against Gram- positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Often used synonyms for Elafin: ESI (Elastase-specific Inhibitor), SKALP ( Skin-derived Antileukoproteinase ) and Protease Inhibitor WAP3. Elafin offered from PeptaNova is a chemically manufactured peptide and not recombinat from yeast or bacterial cell culture, therefore cross contamination must not be feared.
Elafin specific Antiserum is available from PeptaNova as well
Shipping | Storage | Stability
Elafin will be shipped at room temperature and long term storage at -20°C is recommended. Stock solutions should be stored at -20°C. Please avoid repeated freezing and thawing by preparing aliquots.
