This fast track antibody is not yet fully characterized. It is subject to these terms and conditions




  • Application notes
    Tested in peptide ELISA.
    Not tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
    WB: No signal obtained yet but low background observed in Human Kidney and Testis extracts at up to 1µg/ml. We would appreciate any feedback from people in the field - have any results been reported with other antibodies/lysates?
  • Target

    • Function
      Deubiquitinating enzyme that hydrolyzes ubiquitin moieties conjugated to substrates and thus, functions to process newly synthesized Ubiquitin, to recycle ubiquitin molecules or to edit polyubiquitin chains and prevents proteasomal degradation of substrates. Hydrolyzes both 'Lys-48'- and 'Lys-63'-linked tetraubiquitin chains.
      The muscle-specific isoform (USP25m) may have a role in the regulation of muscular differentiation and function.
    • Tissue specificity
      Isoform USB25a is found in most adult and fetal tissues; expression is moderately high in testis, pancreas, kidney, skeletal muscle, liver, lung, placenta, brain, heart, but very low in peripheral blood, colon, small intestine, ovary, prostate, thymus and spleen. Isoform USB25b is found in all tissues except heart and skeletal muscle. Isoform USB25m is heart and skeletal muscle specific.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the peptidase C19 family.
      Contains 1 UBA-like domain.
      Contains 2 UIM (ubiquitin-interacting motif) repeats.
    • Post-translational
      Sumoylation impairs binding to and hydrolysis of ubiquitin chains. Sumoylated preferentially by SUMO2 or SUMO3. Desumoylated by SENP1. Regulated by ubiquitination on the same residue.
      Preferentially monoubiquitinated but can also be polyubiquitinated. Autodeubiquitinated. Ubiquitination activates the enzymatic activity either by preventing sumoylation or by allowing novel interactions.
      Phosphorylation in the C-terminal by SYK regulates USP25 cellular levels.
    • Cellular localization
      Cytoplasm and Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Some transient punctuate nuclear location in myotubes during myocyte development.

    Many thanks for the additional information. I think we now understand your experiment and are almost convinced that you have shown that this Fast-Track antibody does not work. However given the lack of published work on USP25, especially work using a...

    Thank you for your reply and your clarification. Could you please let me know if the other antibody can actually detect USP 25 under the same conditions? Otherwise, it might just be low sensitivity (mass spec can be very sensitive). We appreciate ...

    Thank you for your enquiry. We would be very grateful if you can clarify the followings: 1. Did you immunoprecipitate with this antibody? 2. Are you saying it works in IP but not on Western blot application? 3. Or did you IP with another antibod...
