SNF8 Human Recombinant produced in E. coli is a single polypeptide chain containing 282 amino acids (1-258) and having a molecular mass of 31.4 kDa.SNF8 is fused to a 24 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
SNF8 belongs to the SNF8 family of vacuolar sorting proteins and is restricts to both the nucleus and the cytoplasm. SNF8 is a subunit of the endosomal sorting complex essential for transport II (ESCRT-II), which is necessary for multivesicular body (MVB) formation and sorting of endosomal cargo proteins into MVBs. The MVB pathway facilitates transfer of transmembrane proteins into the lumen of the lysosome for degradation. Additionally, the ESCRT-II complex takes part in transcription regulation by contributing to derepression of transcription by RNA polymerase II, probably by its interface with ELL.
SNF8 ESCRT-II complex subunit homolog (S. cerevisiae), ESCRT-II complex subunit VPS22, ELL-associated protein of 30 kDa, EAP30 subunit of ELL complex, vacuolar-sorting protein SNF8, EAP30, VPS22, Dot3.
