Measured by its ability to produce hydrogen peroxide during the oxidation of benzylamine. The specific activity >16 pMoles/min/ug of AOC3.
Activity assay SDS-PAGE The optimal working dilution should be determined by the end user.
Lyophilized from sterile 10 mM Sodium Phosphate, pH 7.8
Store at -20°C. Reconstitute in water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Do not vortex. For extended storage, to further dilute in buffer containing carrier protein (e.g. 0.1% BSA) and store in aliquots at -20°C to -80°C is recommended.
Copper amine oxidases catalyze the oxidative conversion of amines to aldehydes in the presence of copper and quinone cofactor. The product is a major protein on the adipocyte plasma membrane. It has adhesive properties and also has functional monoamine oxidase activity. A pseudogene for this gene has been discribed and is located approximately 9-kb downstream. [provided by RefSeq
