Recombinant Human His6-PolyUb WT Chains (2-7,K48-linked), CF Summary

Product Specifications

Purity
>95%, by SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions and visualized by Colloidal Coomassie® Blue stain
Activity
Ubiquitin chains vary in length, linkage, and function. K48-linked His6-Poly-Ubiquitin Chains (Ub2-7) are ideal for investigating Ubiquitin-binding proteins and as substrates for Ubiquitin-specific isopeptidases. Reaction conditions will need to be optimized for each specific application. IMPORTANT: Heating this product in SDS-PAGE buffer or terminating reactions containing this product with heated SDS-PAGE buffer could lead to unexpected, high apparent molecular weight banding or smearing on gels that is not representative of product purity. For optimal results, we recommend incubation in SDS-PAGE buffer + DTT at <40 °C for 20 minutes prior to gel electrophoresis.

Product Datasheets

Carrier Free

What does CF mean?

CF stands for Carrier Free (CF). We typically add Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a carrier protein to our recombinant proteins. Adding a carrier protein enhances protein stability, increases shelf-life, and allows the recombinant protein to be stored at a more dilute concentration. The carrier free version does not contain BSA.

What formulation is right for me?

In general, we advise purchasing the recombinant protein with BSA for use in cell or tissue culture, or as an ELISA standard. In contrast, the carrier free protein is recommended for applications, in which the presence of BSA could interfere.

Background: Poly-Ubiquitin

Poly-Ubiquitin chains are composed of Ubiquitin monomers that are covalently linked through  isopeptide bonds, which typically form between a lysine residue of one Ubiquitin molecule and the C-terminal glycine residue of another Ubiquitin molecule (1). Each human Ubiquitin monomer is 76 amino acids (aa) in length and shares 96% and 100% aa identity with yeast and mouse Ubiquitin, respectively (2). Seven of the 76 aa in Ubiquitin are lysine residues that can participate in poly-Ubiquitin chain formation. Linkage through specific lysine residues is thought to serve as a signal that affects protein degradation, signaling, trafficking, and other cellular processes (3-8).

Linkage specific poly-Ubiquitin chains are used to investigate mechanisms of chain recognition, binding and hydrolysis by the proteasome, deubiquitinating enzymes, E3 ligases or other proteins that contain ubiquitin-associated domains (UBAs) or ubiquitin-interacting motifs (UIMs). Lys48-linked chains are abundant in vivo and act as a universal signal for proteasomal degradation. This product is formed with His6-tagged wild-type human recombinant Ubiquitin and linkage-specific enzymes. This mixture of poly-Ubiquitin chains contains di-Ubiquitin and higher MW species; mono-Ubiquitin has been removed. The His6-tag is convenient for metal chelate affinity purification and immuno-detection using His6-specific antibodies.
