Material Data Sheet
Quantity:50 µg 100 µg
Also known as: His6-Apg3p (Apg3L)
Apg3p is the E2-like enzyme necessary for the covalent conjugation of human Apg8 modifier proteins to lipid phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) and is essential in autophagosomal membrane formation. The Apg8 ubiquitin-like proteins (including GABARAP, GATE-16, MAP-LC3) are first activated by the E1-like activating enzyme Apg7p. Apg7p forms a complex with Apg3p which subsequently forms a glycyl thiolester bond with Apg8 proteins through its active site cysteine (C264). Accession # NP_071933.
Stock:X mg/ml (X μM) in 50 mM HEPES pH 8.0, 100 mM NaCl, 10% glycerol. Actual concentration will vary with specific lot number.
Purity:> 95% by SDS-PAGE
Use & Storage
Typical enzyme concentration to support conjugation in vitro is 100 nM-1 μM depending on conditions.
