Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified B IP
Proteasome activator 28 Supplied as a liquid in PBS, pH 7.4, 0.1% sodium azide.(PA28), also known as 11S regulator, is composed of two homologous subunits, alpha (a) and beta (b), that share ~ 50% amino acid identity.1 A separate but related protein, PA28gamma, was originally identified as Ki antigen from sera of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus.1-3 PA28a and PA28b are located primarily in the cytoplasm, whereas PA28g is located in the nucleus.4,5 PA28 binds to the outer rings on both ends of the 20S proteasome to form a football-like structure.6,7 Binding of PA28 greatly stimulates multiple peptidase activities of the 20S proteasome in an ATP-independent reaction, but lacks the ability to degrade large protein substrates, suggesting that PA28 may cooperate with the 26 S proteasome in a sequential proteolytic pathway.8,9 Abnormally high expression of PA28g has been observed in thyroid cancer, particularly in regions of cancer cells where growth rate is accelerated.11 PA28g interacts directly with Hepatitis C virus (HCV) core protein, which becomes retained in the cellís nucleus,12 and with MEKK3, which phosphorylates PA28g and increases its cellular levels.13
