|Other Names||SUMO-activating enzyme subunit 2, 632-, Anthracycline-associated resistance ARX, Ubiquitin-like 1-activating enzyme E1B, Ubiquitin-like modifier-activating enzyme 2, UBA2, SAE2, UBLE1B|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP1065a was selected from the N-term region of human UBA2. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. 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|

Ubiquitin is covalently attached to target proteins by a multienzymatic system consisting of E1 (ubiquitin-activating), E2 (ubiquitin-conjugating), and E3 (ubiquitin-ligating) enzymes. NEDD8, a ubiquitin-like protein, is conjugated to proteins in a manner analogous to ubiquitinylation. beta-amyloid precursor protein-binding protein-1 (APPBP1) can bind to NEDD8 in rabbit reticulocyte lysates. However, since APPBP1 shows similarity to only the N-terminal domain of an E1 enzyme, it must interact with a protein showing similarity to the C-terminal region of E1s. By searching sequence databases, a cDNAs encoding UBA3 was identified as the human homolog of yeast Uba3. The predicted 442-amino acid UBA3 protein shares 43% sequence identity with yeast Uba3. In vitro, UBA3 formed a complex with APPBP1 and a thioester linkage with NEDD8. APPBP1/UBA3 complex may function as an E1-like enzyme for the activation of NEDD8.
