Recombinant sfGFP-HBxAg Fusion Protein

Product Name: Recombinant sfGFP-HBxAg Fusion Protein
Catalog #:  VRP-3453
Manufacture:  LD Biopharma, Inc.

HBx gene encodes a 17-kDa viral protein (HBxAg) that plays an essential role in the HBV replication cycle. It was recently determined that a key function of HBxAg is to promote the degradation of the cellular structural maintenance of chromosomes 5/6 complex (Smc5/6). Smc5/6 directly binds DNA, and has been shown to topologically entrap DNA plasmids. As such, HBxAg is a potential therapeutic target since it promotes the degradation of the hepatocyte Smc5/6 complex that inhibits HBV transcription.

Full-length HBxAg cDNA (153aa, derived from Adw2 subtype) was constructed with codon optimization gene synthesis and expressed with SuperGFP protein as N-terminal (sfGFP; 257aa) fusion tag in E.coli as inclusion bodies. The final product was refolded using our unique “temperature shift inclusion body refolding” technology and chromatographically purified.

  1. May be used for in vitro HBxAg protein mediated signal regulation for hepatocytes study as negative control for intracellular delivery of recombinant sfGFP-HBxAg-11R protein, which can be directly by adding 11R tag protein into cell culture medium. 
  2. May be used for HBxAg protein-protein interaction assay.
  3. May be used as specific substrate protein for HBxAg specific kinase, and ubiquitin (Sumo pathway) related enzyme functional screening assays.
  4. Potential therapeutic protein, by blocking HBxAg / host target protein interactions may be a useful strategy to control HBV replication or preventing liver cancer.
