Recombinant Human His6-USP7 Catalytic Domain Protein, CF Summary

>95%, by SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions and visualized by Colloidal Coomassie® Blue stain
Recombinant Human His6-USP7 Catalytic Domain is a Ubiquitin-specific deconjugating enzyme. Reaction conditions will need to be optimized for each specific application. We recommend an initial Recombinant Human His6-USP7 Catalytic Domain concentration of 1-5 nM.  A 15 minute pre-incubation with 10 mM DTT is recommended to achieve maximum activity.
E. coli-derived human USP7 protein
Contains an N-terminal Met-Gly-Ser-Ser and 6-His tag
Accession # Q93009
Accession #
Predicted Molecular Mass
41 kDa

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: USP7

Ubiquitin Specific Peptidase 7 (USP7), also known as Herpes Virus-associated Ubiquitin Specific Protease (HAUSP), is a widely expressed deubiquitinating enzyme belonging to the peptidase C19 family (1). It has a predicted molecular weight of 130 kDa (2). Human USP7 is 1102 amino acids (aa) in length and shares 99% aa sequence identity with the mouse and rat orthologs (2,3). USP7 consists of a cysteine peptidase core (aa 208-560) that is flanked by an N-terminal TRAF-like domain (aa 50-205) and two C-terminal protease-resistant domains (aa 622-801 and 885-1061) (2,3). USP7 can be phosphorylated at Ser18 and Ser963 and ubiquitinated at Lys869 (2,4). USP7 was initially identified as a p53-interacting protein that deubiquitinates p53, thereby stabilizing the protein and inducing p53-dependent cell growth arrest and apoptosis (5). USP7 also targets the p53 regulatory proteins MDM2, MDMX, and Daxx, the epigenetic regulator Histone 2B, and the transcription factor FoxO4 (4,6-10). Additionally, USP7 interacts with the HSV-1 immediate early protein ICP0, contributing to the stabilization and transactivation capability of ICP0 during HSV-1 infection (1,11,12).

This recombinant human protein encompasses the catalytic domain of USP7 (aa 213-548) and contains an N-terminal His6-tag.
