Uba5 Antibody (N-term) Blocking Peptide

Synthetic peptide

Product Information
Primary Accession Q9GZZ9
Clone Names 4060105
Additional Information
Gene ID 79876
Other Names Ubiquitin-like modifier-activating enzyme 5, Ubiquitin-activating enzyme 5, ThiFP1, UFM1-activating enzyme, Ubiquitin-activating enzyme E1 domain-containing protein 1, UBA5, UBE1DC1
Target/Specificity The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP2186a was selected from the N-term region of human Uba5. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.
Format Peptides are lyophilized in a solid powder format. Peptides can be reconstituted in solution using the appropriate buffer as needed.
StorageMaintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.
PrecautionsThis product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
Protein Information
Name UBA5 {ECO:0000303|PubMed:15071506, ECO:0000312|HGNC:HGNC:23230}
Function E1-like enzyme which specifically catalyzes the first step in ufmylation (PubMed:15071506, PubMed:18442052, PubMed:25219498, PubMed:20368332, PubMed:27653677, PubMed:26929408, PubMed:27545674, PubMed:30412706, PubMed:27545681). Activates UFM1 by first adenylating its C-terminal glycine residue with ATP, and thereafter linking this residue to the side chain of a cysteine residue in E1, yielding a UFM1- E1 thioester and free AMP (PubMed:20368332, PubMed:27653677, PubMed:26929408, PubMed:30412706). Activates UFM1 via a trans-binding mechanism, in which UFM1 interacts with distinct sites in both subunits of the UBA5 homodimer (PubMed:27653677). Trans-binding also promotes stabilization of the UBA5 homodimer, and enhances ATP-binding (PubMed:29295865). Transfer of UFM1 from UBA5 to the E2-like enzyme UFC1 also takes place using a trans mechanism (PubMed:27653677). Ufmylation is involved in reticulophagy (also called ER-phagy) induced in response to endoplasmic reticulum stress (PubMed:32160526). Ufmylation is essential for erythroid differentiation of both megakaryocytes and erythrocytes (By similarity).
Cellular Location Cytoplasm. Nucleus Endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Golgi apparatus. Note=Localizes mainly in the cytoplasm, while it localizes to the nucleus in presence of SUMO2 (PubMed:18442052). Interaction with GABARAPL2 promotes localization to the endoplasmic reticulum membrane (PubMed:30990354)
Tissue Location Widely expressed..

Various ubiquitin-like (UBL) post-translational modifiers contribute critically to the protein degradation pathway. These UBLs are covalently linked to most target proteins through an enzymatic cascade analogous to ubiquitylation, consisting of E1 (activating), E2 (conjugating), and E3 (ligating) enzymes. Uba5 is an E1-like enzyme that belongs to the ubiquitin-activating enzyme family, and activates UFM1, a novel ubiquitin-fold modifier.
