LifeSensors appoints new distributor

Wednesday, 16 January, 2013

LifeSensors has appointed United Bioresearch Products as its new Australian distributor.

LifeSensors is a producer of innovative tools that facilitate the study of the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway (UPP). They also develop novel technologies that use SUMO-fusion tags to improve yield and reduce costs of protein expression.

The company’s SUMO-based protein and peptide expression systems maximise the yield of soluble, functional proteins in E. coli, yeast, insect and mammalian cells. This system uses features of SUMO functioning as both a chaperonin and as an initiator of protein folding to improve the solubility and level of expression of the protein of interest.

LifeSensors desumoylases efficiently and robustly remove SUMO tags precisely at the junction of the C-terminus of the SUMO and the N-terminus of the protein, releasing it with the desired N-terminal amino acid (with the exception of proline). Both the SUMO tags and the desumoylases have His6 tags, making their subsequent removal fast and easy.

LifeSensors also offers a range of ubiquitin research tools such as affinity reagents, conjugation assays, isopeptidase assays, Ubl-pathway inhibitors and isopeptidase substrates.
