Recombinant Human Ubiquitin-Conjugating Enzyme E2 K/UBE2K (N-GST)
Recombinant Human Ubiquitin-Conjugating Enzyme E2 K is produced by our E.coli expression system and the target gene encoding Met1-Asn200 is expressed with a GST tag at the N-terminus. Bon Opus Cat. #C186
BackgroundUbiquitin-Conjugating Enzyme E2 K (UBE2K) belongs to the E2 Ubiquitin-Conjugating Enzyme family. UBE2K is highly expressed in the brain, with highest levels found in cortex and striatum, and at lower levels in cerebellum and brainstem. UBE2K may mediate foam cell formation by the suppression of apoptosis of lipid-bearing macrophages through ubiquitination and subsequence degradation of p53/TP53. UBE2K is associated with the selective degradation of short-lived and abnormal proteins, such as the endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation (ERAD) of misfolded lumenal proteins. In addition, UBE2K is involved in Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease and antigen processing through its interaction with huntingtin, and MHC-heavy chain proteins.
