All OTUB1 reagents are produced in house and quality controlled, including 28 OTUB1 Gene, 1 OTUB1 Protein, 2 OTUB1 qPCR. All OTUB1 reagents are ready to use.
Recombinant OTUB1 proteins are expressed by E. coli with fusion tags as N-His.
OTUB1cDNA clones are full length sequence confirmed and expression validated. There are 13 kinds of tags for each OTUB1 of different species, especially GFP tag, OFP tag, FLAG tag and so on. There are three kinds of vectors for choice, cloning vector, expression vector and lentivrial expression vector.
Ubiquitin thioesterase OTUB1, also known as Deubiquitinating enzyme OTUB1, OTU domain-containing ubiquitin aldehyde-binding protein 1, Otubain-1, Ubiquitin-specific-processing protease OTUB1, OTUB1 and OTB1, is a cytoplasm protein which belongs to the peptidase C65 family. OTUB1 is a hydrolase that can remove conjugated ubiquitin from proteins and plays an important regulatory role at the level of protein turnover by preventing degradation. OTUB1 is a regulator of T-cell anergy, a phenomenon that occurs when T-cells are rendered unresponsive to antigen rechallenge and no longer respond to their cognate antigen. OTUB1 acts via its interaction with RNF128 / GRAIL, a crucial inductor of CD4 T-cell anergy. Isoform 1 of OTUB1 destabilizes RNF128, leading to prevent anergy. In contrast, isoform 2 of OTUB1 stabilizes RNF128 and promotes anergy. OTUB1 regulates RNF128-mediated ubiquitination, but does not deubiquitinate polyubiquitinated RNF128. Deubiquitinates estrogen receptor alpha (ESR1). OTUB1 mediates deubiquitination of 'Lys-48'-linked polyubiquitin chains, but not 'Lys-63'-linked polyubiquitin chains. OTUB1 is also capable of removing NEDD8 from NEDD8 conjugates, but with a much lower preference compared to 'Lys-48'-linked ubiquitin.
