|Product Overview:||Recombinant SARSV Papain-like Protease(Glu1541 - Lys1841) was expressed in E. coli.|
|Description:||The Papain-like protease ("PLPro") from the human SARS coronavirus (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus) is a cysteine protease located within the non-structural protein 3 (NS3) section of the viral polypeptide. PLPro activity is required to process the viral polyprotein into functional, mature subunits; specifically, PLPro cleaves a site at the amino-terminus of the viral replicase region. In addition to its role in viral protein maturation, PLPro possesses a deubiquitinating and deISGylating activity. In vivo, this protease antagonizes innate immunity by inhibiting IRF3-induced production of type I interferons. PLPro has been reported to hydrolyze both K48- and K63 linked poly-Ubiquitin chains in vitro. When used at low concentrations, the enzyme demonstrates a strong preference for K48-linked tetra-Ubiquitin chains which are primarily converted to di-Ubiquitin species. This protein contains an N-terminal 6-His tag.|
|Form:||X mg/ml (X μM) in 50 mM HEPES pH 7.5, 100 mM NaCl, 2 mM TCEP|
|Bio-activity:||Recombinant SARS virus PLPro is a Ubiquitin- and ISG15-deconjugating enzyme. Reaction conditions will need to be optimized for each specific application. We recommend an initial PLPro concentration of 20-100 nM when using Ubiquitin-AMC (U-550) or Ubiquitin-Rhodamine 110 (U-555) as a subtrate. Using tetra-Ubiquitin chains as a substrate, PLPro demonstrates a preference for K48 linkages when using a 100 nM enzyme concentration--at higher enzyme concentration other linkages are cleaved as well.|
