Human Corin ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human Corin ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human Corin in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma (heparin, EDTA) and tissue homogenates.
Atrial natriuretic peptide-converting enzyme, also called CRN or ATC2, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the CORIN gene. It is mapped to 4p12. This gene encodes a member of the type II transmembrane serine protease class of the trypsin superfamily. Members of this family are composed of multiple structurally distinct domains. It has been found that Corin is the pro-ANP-converting enzyme and that Corin-mediated pro-ANP activation may play a role in regulating blood pressure. Whats more, Corin and ANP are essential for physiologic changes at the maternal-fetal interface. This protein may also function as a pro-brain-type natriuretic peptide convertase. Corin gene mutations which cause Corin to impair activity might be an underlying mechanism in hypertension.
