26S Proteasome Degradation Kit

1 Kit

A specific series of specialized chromatographic steps yields a partially purified fraction containing 26S proteasome and none of the conjugation enzymes (E1, E2s, or E3s). This stable fraction is preferred for the degradation of pre-formed ubiquitin-protein conjugates by the 26S proteasome since highly purified 26S is costly and more labile. The 26S concentration is estimated based on analytical SEC at 1500 kDa and quantitation of the 20S core particle activity using a fluorogenic peptide substrate. General procedures for the use of this product are found below.

NOTE: Kit contains reagents sufficient for 10 x 50 μl reactions.
