Ubiquitin-Aldehyde is a potent and specific inhibitor of deubiquitinating enzymes (DUBs) based on a C-terminal electrophilic Aldehyde group. Ub-Aldehyde can be used for activity profiling experiments and DUB inhibitor specificity determination. It targets four of the five major DUB families: UCH, USP, OUT, and MJD, while leaving JAMM metalloproteases uninhibited. Reaction conditions will need to be optimized for each specific application. We recommend an initial Recombinant Human Ubiquitin-Aldehyde concentration of 1-5 μM.
Ubiquitin is a small (8.5 kDa) regulatory protein that has been found in almost all tissues of eukaryotic organisms. The addition of ubiquitin to a substrate protein is called ubiquitination or ubiquitylation. Ubiquitination can affect proteins in many ways; it can signal for their degradation via the proteasome, alter their cellular location, affect their activity, and promote or prevent protein interactions. Removal of ubiquitin from a substrate protein occurs via deconjugating enzymes, of which there are nearly 100 known enzymes with various linkage specificities. This product consists of a full-length human, mature ubiquitin polypeptide (amino acids 1-76), expressed in E.coli with a c-terminal warhead (Aldehyde). Ubiquitin- Aldehyde is a potent, irreversible, and specific inhibitor of deubiquitinating enzymes (DUBs) based on a C-terminal electrophilic Aldehyde group. Ub- Aldehyde can be used for activity profiling experiments and determining DUB inhibitor specificity. It targets three of the four major DUB families: UCH (Ubiquitin c-terminal hydrolases), USP (Ubiquitin Specific Proteases), OTU (Ovarian Tumor Proteases), and MJD (Machado-Josephin domain proteases) while JAMM metalloproteases are not inhibited. Reaction conditions will need to be optimized for each specific application. We recommend an initial Recombinant Human Ubiquitin-Aldehyde concentration of 1-5 μM.
