Data Sheet: 

UFM1 (Ubiquitin-Fold Modifier 1) is a ubiquitin-like protein that is covalently linked to target proteins via enzymatic reactions similar to ubiquitin. UFM1 is derived from the precursor form pro-UFM1 (Accession # NP_057701) which contains two additional amino acids (Ser84Cys85) following the conserved Gly83. While the sequence of UFM1 shares only 16% sequence identify with ubiquitin, they have similar overall tertiary structures. Mature UFM1 is activated by the E1-like enzyme Uba5 (E-319) and subsequently transferred to its cognate E2-like conjugating enzyme, Ufc1 (E2-675). It is known that UFM1 becomes conjugated to as yet unidentified proteins in HEK cells and various mouse tissues. UFM1 is conserved in metazoa and plants, but not yeast. The exact cellular function and role of UFM1 modification in vivo is not yet known.
This protein contains an N-terminal His6 tag.
