Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Dose Response confirmation of inhibitors of Sentrin-specific proteases (SENPs) using a Caspase-3 Selectivity assay
Description:  Data Source: Sanford-Burnham Center for Chemical Genomics (SBCCG) Source Affiliation: Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute (SBMRI, San Diego, CA) Network: NIH Molecular Libraries Probe Production Centers Network(MLPCN) Grant Proposal Number: 1R21 NS061758-01 fast track Assay Provider: Dr. Guy Salvesen, Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute (SBMRI, San Diego, CA) Modification of proteins by SUMO is a dynamic and reversible process. SUMOylation/deSUMOylation cycle regulates SUMOs function. Sentrin-specific proteases (SENPs) are involved in both the maturation of SUMO precursors (endopeptidase cleavage) and deconjugation of the targets (isopeptidase cleavage) [1-3]. There are seven SENPs (1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8) in humans, and several of these have been characterized as SUMO (or Nedd8) specific enzymes. SENP8 is not a SUMO protease, instead it functions on a small ubiquitin related protein Nedd8. The objective of this project is to generate small molecule inhibitors specific for
