  • Fastest assay time on the market, just under 1.5 hours
  • Simple 4 step assay: Mix, Incubate, Quench and Assay
  • High specificity, high throughput capacity
  • Amenable to analysis via Western blotting or proteomic methods
This kit provides a means of generating SUMOylated proteins in vitro, by covalent linkage of the carboxy-terminal of SUMO-1, -2 or -3 to specific lysine residues on the target protein via isopeptide bonds, using the SUMOylation enzyme cascade. A short sequence containing the consensus ?-K-X-D/E (where lysine is the amino acid modified, ? is a large hydrophobic residue and X is any amino acid residue) is thought to be necessary for this in vitro protein SUMOylation to occur, however SUMOylation has also been observed in cases where the consensus site is not conserved. A control target protein is provided together with all other necessary components. SUMO specific antibodies are provided for detection of SUMOylated proteins via SDS-PAGE and Western blotting. Provides sufficient material for 20 x 20µL reactions. Suggested uses: For SUMO-modification of specific proteins in vitro, To demonstrate that novel proteins are potential targets for SUMOylation under in vitro conditions, To generate substrates for deSUMOylating enzymes, such as SENP1 and SENP2, To test proteins for SUMO E3 ligase activity.

Product Details

Application Notes:Uses:
1. SUMO-modification of specific proteins in vitro. Allow investigation of the effect SUMOylation has on enzyme function, stabilisation, protein:protein interactions and, hence, it’s role in regulation of cellular processes, such as the p53 tumour repressor and NF-κB pathways.
2. Demonstrate novel proteins are potential targets for SUMOylation under in vitro conditions. Starting point for examining the role SUMOylation of a protein might play in vivo.
3. Generate substrates for deSUMOylating enzymes, such as SENP1 (Prod. No. BML-UW9760) and SENP2 (Prod. No. BML-UW9765).
4. Test proteins for SUMO E3 ligase activity: does it facilitate or enhance SUMOylation of specific target proteins, particularly under conditions/enzyme concentrations that more closely represent those in vivo.
5. Addition of known SUMO E3 ligase to facilitate/enhance target protein SUMOylation, particularly under conditions/enzyme concentrations that more closely represent those in vivo (e.g. RANBP2 [Prod. No. BML-UW9455], shown to be a ligase for SP100 SUMOylation).
6. SUMOylation of proteins in cell lysates or crude fractions/preparations to facilitate investigation of their role/function in complex solutions.
7. Demonstrate SUMOylation of known proteins in specific lysates (confirm with target protein specific antibodies).
8. Use of cell lysate or crude fractions/preparations as source of SUMO E3 ligases to facilitate SUMOylation of purified target proteins in the presence of SUMOylation kit components.

Note: Protocol provided for application 1. Assay set-up can be readily modified for alternative applications by inclusion, omission or substitution of specific components.
