Description

Preparation Note

Purified under mild extraction conditions to minimize peptide bond cleavage as described by Starcher, et al.

Application

Elastin is a structural protein which has been used in studies of Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It may be used to investigate why there is a lack of repair for these proteins in patients with COPD.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Elastin plays a critical role in alveolization in the fetal lung. In vivo radiochemical labelling indicates that mouse or rat lung elastin is synthesized primarily prenatally and during the first two weeks of life. It turns over very slowly, with a half-life estimated at several years.
