RPA2 Human Recombinant fused with a 23 amino acid His tag at N-terminus produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 293 amino acids (1-270 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 31.7kDa. The RPA2 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Replication Protein A2 (RPA2) is a single stranded DNA binding protein. Human RPA2 is a heterotrimeric protein containing subunits of 14, 32 and 70kDa. The RPA2 protein complex is highly conserved in eukaryotes and is crucial in DNA replication, homologous recombination and nucleotide excision repair. RPA2 C-terminus specifically interacts with the DNA repair enzyme UNG2 and repair factors XPA and Rad52, each of which functions in a different repair pathway. Additionally, RPA2 binds specifically to the SH2 domain of Stat3 in vivo, and overexpression of RPA2 corresponds to the aµgmented growth factor-stimulated tyrosine phosphorylation and transcription activities of Stat3.
