HRP-2663 Recombinant Human ALKBH3-11R Protein $300

Recombinant Human ALKBH3-11R Protein

Product Name: Recombinant Human ALKBH3-11R Protein
Catalog #:  HRP-2663
Manufacture:  LD Biopharma, Inc.

The E.coli AlkB protein protects against the cytotoxicity of methylating agents by repair of the specific DNA lesions generated in single-stranded DNA. ALKBH2 and ALKBH3 are E. coli AlkB homologs that catalyze the removal of 1-methyladenine and 3-methylcytosine. As dioxygenase, Human ALKBH3 protein mediates demethylation of DNA and RNA containing 1-methyladenosine (m1A). It repairs alkylated DNA containing 1-methyladenosine (m1A) and 3-methylcytosine (m3C) by oxidative demethylation. ALKBH3 has a strong preference for single-stranded DNA. It able to process alkylated m3C within double-stranded regions via its interaction with ASCC3, which promotes DNA unwinding to generate single-stranded substrate needed for ALKBH3. It also acts on RNA. ALKBH3 demethylates N1-methyladenosine (m1A) RNA, an epigenetic internal modification of messenger RNAs (mRNAs) highly enriched within 5'-untranslated regions (UTRs) and in the vicinity of start codons. It requires molecular oxygen, alpha-ketoglutarate and iron.

Full-length human ALKBH3 cDNA (285aa, derived BC0067257) was constructed with codon optimization using gene synthesis technology and expressed with a small T7-His-TEV cleavage site Tag (29aa) fusion at its N-terminal and 11 Poly-Arginine (11R) tag at its C-terminal. It was expressed in E. coli as inclusion bodies. The final product was refolded using our unique “temperature shift inclusion body refolding” technology and chromatographically purified.
