20S Immunoproteasome

Price: 
$275
Quantity: 
50 µg
Data Sheet: 

The 20S catalytic core is composed of 4 rings of 28 non-identical subunits; 2 rings are composed of 7 alpha subunits and 2 rings are composed of 7 beta subunits. Immunoproteasomes are modified forms of the constitutive 20S that function in MHC Class I antigen processing. During immunoproteasome assembly, the constitutive catalytic subunits (Delta, Z and X) are replaced by the inducible subunits LMP2, LMP7 and MECL, the former two being encoded by MHC. This protein has been purified from mouse spleen.
