Mouse anti Human elastase antibody, clone 39A
recognizes human neutrophil elastase, also known as elastase-2, Bone marrow serine protease, PMN elastase or Medullasin. Elastase is a 238 amino acid ~27 kDa enzyme with an addiional 29 amino acid signal and pro-peptide region. Mutations of the ELA2 gene can lead to a number of hematopoietic disorders including cyclic hematopoiesis (CH
) characterized by a 21 day cycle of bone marrow derived blood cell production with neutrophil numbers ranging between normal levels and almost zero (Horwitz et al. 1999
) and severe congential autosomal neutropenia (SCN1
) demonstating developmental arrest of granulopoiesis at the promyelocyte stage (Bellanné-Chantelot et al. 2004
) with both conditions leading to a predisposition to bacterial infections..
