Specificity / Sensitivity
PTMScan® Ubiquitin Branch Motif (K-ε-GG) Immunoaffinity Beads detect and capture endogenous levels of peptide derived from trypsin digested cellular proteins containing ubiquitinated (mono or poly ubiquitinated) or neddylated proteins. The antibody recognizes peptides containing (K-ε-GG) motif in a wide range of sequence contexts, no preference is observed at any positions.

Ubiquitin is a conserved polypeptide unit that plays an important role in the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway. Ubiquitin can be covalently linked to many cellular proteins by the ubiquitination process, which targets proteins for degradation by the 26S proteasome. Three components are involved in the target protein-ubiquitin conjugation process. Ubiquitin is first activated by forming a thiolester complex with the activation component E1; the activated ubiquitin is subsequently transferred to the ubiquitin-carrier protein E2, then from E2 to ubiquitin ligase E3 for final delivery to the epsilon-NH2 of the target protein lysine residue (1-3). The ubiquitin-proteasome pathway has been implicated in a wide range of normal biological processes and in disease-related abnormalities. Several proteins such as IκB, p53, cdc25A, and Bcl-2 have been shown to be targets for the ubiquitin-proteasome process as part of regulation of cell cycle progression, differentiation, cell stress response, and apoptosis (4-7).
