USP14 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 517 amino acids (1-494 a.a) and having a molecular mass of 58.5kDa. USP14 is fused to a 23 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
USP14 belongs to the ubiquitin-specific processing (UBP) family of proteases which is a deubiquitinating enzyme (DUB) containing His and Cys domains. USP14 placed in the cytoplasm and cuts the ubiquitin from ubiquitin-fused precursors and ubiquitinylated proteins.a mutation which results in reduced expression of the ortholog of USP14 in mice inhibits growth, develop severe tremors by 2 to 3 weeks of age followed by paralysis and death by 6 to 10 weeks of age.
USP14 protein solution (1mg/ml) containing 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0), 0.2M NaCl, 20% glycerol and 1mM DTT.
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.
