NUDT2 produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 167 amino acids (1-147a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 19.0kDa.NUDT2 is fused to a 20 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
NUDT2 belongs to the MutT family of nucleotide pyrophosphatases, a subset of the larger NUDIX hydrolase family. NUDT2 conserves homeostasis by using water to cleave the metabolite NUDT symmetrically back into its original ATP and AMP molecules. In addition, NUDT2 is active towards other adenosine and diadenosine polyphosphates with four or more phosphate groups, however, not towards diadenosine triphosphate. NUDT2 has a role in heat shock and metabolic stress by regulating intracellular dinucleoside polyphosphate concentrations.
