SKP1 (S-phase kinase-associated protein 1) is a core component of the Skp1-Cullin-F-box (SCF) ubiquitin ligase protein complex. It mediates the ubiquitination of proteins involved in cell cycle progression, transcriptional regulation, and signal transduction. Among the components of the SCF complexes, SKP1 is an adaptor between one of the variable F-box proteins and Cullin (1). Independent of its function as a part of the SCF complex, SKP1 also functions in mitotic exit and cytokinesis. A possible contribution to the function of SKP1 in the mitotic exit is its physical interaction with Bfa1, a key negative regulator of the mitotic exit network (2). SKP1 also plays a crucial role in proper chromosomal segregation, which is required for the maintenance of euploidy and suppression of transformation (3).

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.
