PSMB5 Human Recombinant fused with a 36 amino acid His tag at N-terminus produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 241 amino acids (60-263 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 26.7kDa. The PSMB5 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
PSMB5 belongs to the proteasome B-type family that has a 20S core beta subunit in the proteasome. This catalytic subunit is not present in the immunoproteasome and is substituted by catalytic subunit 3i (proteasome beta 8 subunit). A fundamental function of a modified proteasome, the immunoproteasome, is the processing of class I MHC peptides. PSMB5 exhibits an ATP dependent proteolytic activity and is involved in an ATP/ubiquitin dependent non lysosomal proteolytic pathway.
The PSMB5 solution (0.25 mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0), 20% glycerol, 5mM DTT and 0.2M NaCl.
Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks. Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
