Recombinant Human/Mouse/Rat NEDD8 Protein, CF Summary

Details of Functionality
Recombinant Human NEDD8 can be conjugated to substrate proteins via the subsequent actions of a NEDD8-activating (E1) enzyme, a NEDD8-conjugating (E2) enzyme, and a NEDD8 ligase (E3). Reaction conditions will need to be optimized for each specific application. We recommend an initial Recombinant Human NEDD8 concentration of 10-50 μM.

Neural Precursor Cell Expressed Developmentally Downregulated Gene 8 (NEDD8), also known as Related to Ubiquitin 1 (Rub1), is a 6-8 kDa member of the Ubiquitin family of proteins. Human pro-NEDD8 is 81 amino acids (aa) in length. Pro-NEDD8 contains one Ubiquitin-like domain (aa 1-65) and a 4-5 aa C-terminal propeptide (1,2). Cleavage of the propeptide exposes a C-terminal glycine residue that is used to generate a glycine-lysine intermolecular bond. Mature human NEDD8 is highly conserved and shows 100% aa identity to NEDD8 from several species including mouse, rat, and canine. Human NEDD8 is activated by a distinct NEDD8-activating (E1) enzyme, a heterodimeric complex composed of APPBP1 and UBA3 subunits (3). Activated NEDD8 is subsequently transferred to the UBE2M/Ubc12 or UBE2F NEDD8-conjugating (E2) enzymes (4). Through a process termed neddylation, the ROC1/Rbx1 RING Finger E3 ligase transfers NEDD8 to specific substrates (5). For example, transfer of NEDD8 to the Cullin scaffold activates members of the Cullin-RING Ligase (CRL) family of Ubiquitin ligases (E3) (6-8). CRL-induced ubiquitination is known to regulate proteins that are important for cell cycle progression and cell survival (9,10). Physiologically, NEDD8 plays a critical regulatory role in cell proliferation and dysregulation of the NEDD8 pathway has been associated with several cancer pathologies (11,12).
