UMPS Human Recombinant produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 500 amino acids (1-480 a.a) and having a molecular mass of 54.3kDa.UMPS is fused to a 20 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Uridine 5'-monophosphate synthase (UMPS), is a bifunctional enzyme that catalyzes the ultimate two steps of the de novo pyrimidine biosynthetic pathway. UMPS in eukaryotes links the orotate phosphoribosyltransferase and the orotidine-5’-monophosphate (OMP) decarboxylase activities into a single protein. The harmony of these 2 enzymes is assumed to be stabilized the catalytic centers as a result of the low molar concentration of the protein in mammalian cells.mutations in this gene are the reason of inherited orotic aciduria disease.
The UMPS solution (1mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0), 2M Urea and 20% glycerol.
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.
