SUMO1 Human Recombinant produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 109 amino acids (1-101) and having a molecular mass of 12.6 kDa.SUMO1 is fused to a 8 amino acid His-tag at C-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
SUMO1 is a protein that belongs to the SUMO (small ubiquitin-like modifier) protein family. SUMO1 functions in a manner similar to ubiquitin in that it is bound to target proteins as part of a post-translational modification system. Still, unlike ubiquitin which targets proteins for degradation, SUMO1 is involved in a variety of cellular processes, for example nuclear transport, transcriptional regulation, apoptosis, and protein stability. SUMO1 is not active until the last four amino acids of the carboxy-terminus are cleaved off.
