Ubiquitin–Proteasome System (UPS)

The ubiquitin–proteasome system (UPS) is the major proteolytic system that controls protein degradation. Deubiquitinating enzymes (DUBs) regulate various cellular processes, particularly protein degradation, localization, and protein-protein interactions. Dysregulation of DUB  activity has been linked to several human diseases, including neurodegenerative diseases .

WuXi Biology offers DUB assays for compound screening to support customers’ drug discovery needs. Our customers can place service orders for IC50 determination or single point test.  Both regular and high-throughput screening options are available.  In addition, custom DUB assay development is also available.

  • The assay is measured by enzyme ability to cleave a fluorogenic peptide substrate
  • 96/384 well screening
