Recombinant Human UFM1 Agarose Protein, CF Summary

Product Specifications

UFM1 Agarose is ideal for the enrichment of known UFM1-interacting proteins as well as the discovery of novel UFM1-interacting proteins. We recommend equilibrating the resin by washing with 5-10 mL of your desired aqueous buffer.

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.



0.5 ml Ufm1 agarose is supplied in a 1 ml total volume of 50 mM Hepes pH 7.5, 250 mM NaCl.

Background: UFM1

Human Ubiquitin-fold Modifier 1 (UFM1), also known as BM-002, is an 85 amino acid (aa) member of the Ubiquitin-like protein family that has a predicted molecular weight of 9.1 kDa. Human and mouse UFM1 share 100% aa sequence identity and are primarily localized in the nucleus, but can also be detected in the cytoplasm and the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) (1). ER localization of UFM1 appears to be dependent on the co-expression of UFBP1 (2). Initially expressed as an inactive precursor, UFM1 undergoes proteolytic cleavage at the C-terminus to expose a conserved glycine residue that is necessary for UFM1 conjugation to target proteins. Conjugation of UFM1 to target proteins requires a UFM1-activating (E1) enzyme, a UFM1-conjugating (E2) enzyme, and a UFM1 ligase (E3) (1,3). UFM1 has been shown to be a mediator of ER stress-induced apoptosis and to promote the pathogenesis of Leishmania (2,4). This protein is covalently coupled to agarose beads via primary amines allowing for a fully functional C-terminus. Useful for isolation and capture of UFM1 interacting proteins and/or enzymes that have an affinity for this Ubiquitin-like protein.
