USP46Protein Product Information
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the human USP46 [(Identical to the mouse USP46 (NP_808229.1)] (Met1-Glu366) was fused with the SUMO tag at the N-terminus.
Expressed Host:Baculovirus-Insect Cells
Form & Shipping:In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
USP46Protein QC Testing
Purity:> 95 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Endotoxin:< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Stability:Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃
Predicted N Terminal:Met
Molecule Mass:The secreted recombinant human USP46 consists of 366 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 42.4 KDa. The apparent molecular mass of the protein is approximately 43 Kda in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions due to glycosylation.
Formulation:Lyophilized from sterile 20mM Tris, 500mM NaCl, pH 7.4, 10% gly
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose and mannitol are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.
2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
USP46Protein Usage Guide
Storage:Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Reconstitution:A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.

USP46 belongs to the peptidase C19 family, USP12/USP46 subfamily. Deubiquitinating enzymes (DUBs) are a large group of proteases which are also commonly referred to as deubiquitinating peptidases, deubiquitinating isopeptidases, deubiquitinases, ubiquitin proteases, ubiquitin hydrolyases, ubiquitin isopeptidases, or Dubs. They regulate ubiquitin-dependent metabolic pathways by cleaving ubiquitin-protein bonds. They also may act as negative and positive regulators of the ubiquitin system. Besides ubiquitin recycling, they are also involved in processing of ubiquitin precursors, in proofreading of protein ubiquitination and in disassembly of inhibitory ubiquitin chains. USP46 is a deubiquitinating enzyme that plays a role in behavior, possibly by regulating GABA action. It may act by mediating the deubiquitination of GAD1/GAD67. USP46 has almost no deubiquitinating activity by itself and requires the interaction with WDR48 to have a high activity and it is not involved in deubiquitination of monoubiquitinated FANCD2.
