SMT3 is a Ubiquitin-like protein found in Saccharomyces cerevisiae similar to the mammalian Ubiquitin-like protein SUMO-1, which is involved in posttranslational protein modification. SMT3 is functionally active in regulation of nucleocytoplasmic transport and suggest a role in cell-cycle regulation. Knockdown of SMT3 in Drosophila in the prothoracic gland, which controls key developmental processes through the synthesis and release of ecdysteroids, caused a 4-fold prolongation of larval life and completely blocked the transition from larval to pupal stages.
Suitable for use in Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
