NEDD8 (Neural precursor cell-Expressed Developmentally Down-regulated genes) is an ubiquitin-like protein which plays an important role in cell cycle control and embryogenesis (1). NEDD8 has been shown to conjugate to nuclear proteins in a manner analogous to ubiquination and sentrinization. The conjugation process is though to be catalyzed by thee enzymes; E1 (NEDD8-activation), E2 (NEDD8-conjugation) and E3 (NEDD8-ligation). NEDD8 is known to conjugate to Cul-4A and other cullins proteins via the carboxy-terminal Gly residue for ubiquitinylation (3) while NUB1 will negatively regulate its expression (4).
Suitable for use in Western Blot, Immunoprecipitation, Immunohistochemistry, Immunocytochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Western Blot: 1:500-1:1000
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4 degrees C for short-term only. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20 degrees C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20 degrees C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
