Product name: Human Nucleotide triphosphate diphosphatase NUDT15 (MTH2)

Product description: Recombinant Human Nucleotide triphosphate diphosphatase NUDT15 produced in Nicotiana benthamiana by Agrobacterium-mediated transient expression.


Host species: Nicotiana benthamiana

Molecular weight: 19.4 kDa

Tag: C-terminal His-tag

Uses: For in vitro research use only. Not for human in vivo or therapeutic use.

Relevance: NUDT1 is a member of the NUDIX hydrolase superfamily of pyrophosphohydrolases that act upon nucleoside diphosphatates linked to other moieties, X1. NUDT15 is a 18.6 kDa dimeric, cytosolic enzyme2 that reportedly converts 8-oxo-dGTP and 8-oxo-dGDP to 8-oxo-dGMP leading to the assumption that it may contribute to sanitizing the oxidized dNTP pool3. Recent structural information has however indicated that NUDT15 prefers other nucleotide substrates over 8-oxo-dGTP and that cellular depletion of NUDT15 has no effect on incorporation of 8-oxo-dGTP into DNA and therefore does not impact cancer cell survival in cell lines tested4.
