|Application ||WB, IF, ICC, E|
|Other Accession||NP_005490, 4885649|
|Calculated MW||71224 Da|
|Application Notes||SAE2 antibody can be used for detection of SAE2 by Western blot at 0.25 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunocytochemistry starting at 4 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 5 µg/mL.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||SAE2 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||SAE2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||The heterodimer acts as an E1 ligase for SUMO1, SUMO2, SUMO3, and probably SUMO4. It mediates ATP-dependent activation of SUMO proteins followed by formation of a thioester bond between a SUMO protein and a conserved active site cysteine residue on UBA2/SAE2.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=Shuttles between the cytoplasm and the nucleus, sumoylation is required either for nuclear translocation or nuclear retention|

SAE2 Antibody: Small ubiquitin-like modifiers (SUMOs) are a family of small, related proteins (SUMO-1/2/3/4) that can be enzymatically attached to a target protein by a post-translational modification process termed sumoylation, a major regulator of protein function in cellular processes such as nuclear transport, transcriptional regulation, apoptosis and protein stability. This sumoylation is effected by the heterodimeric enzyme SAE1/SAE2 and the SUMO-1-conjugating enzyme Ubch9. The sumoylation pathway mediated by SAE1/SAE2 is distinct from other ubiquitin-like protein (Ubl) pathways.
