Background

ALKBH2 (AlkB Homolog 2, Alpha-Ketoglutarate Dependent Dioxygenase) is a member of ALKBH protein family. It can repair alkylated DNA and RNA containing 1-methyladenine and 3-methylcytosine by oxidative demethylation. ALKBH2 can also repair alkylated DNA containing 1-ethenoadenine (in vitro). Has strong preference for double-stranded DNA. It can release modified bases from both DNA and RNA. The oxidative demethylation requires molecular oxygen, alpha-ketoglutarate and iron.

Application Notes

Recombinant ALKBH2 protein is suitable for use in enzyme kinetics, inhibitor screening, and selectivity profiling.

Protein Details

Full length ALKBH2 protein (accession number NP_001001655.1) was expressed in E. coli cells with an N-terminal 6xHis Tag. The molecular weight of ALKBH2 is 33.1 kDa.

ALKBH2 dioxygenase activity assay
1 µg of ssDNA oligos (5’-AAAGCAG(1mA)ATTCGAAAAAGCGAAA-3’) was incubated with 0 µg, 0.5 µg, 1 µg, 2 µg, 4 µg of ALKBH2 in 50 µl reaction system including 50 mM HEPES-NaOH pH 8.0, 50 μM Fe(NH4)2(SO4)2, 1 mM 2-oxoglutarate, 2 mM ascorbate and 1 mM TCEP for 30 min at 37°C. Then ssDNA oligos were annealed with equimolar of non-methylated complement strand followed by 1 µg EcoRI digestion for 45 min at 37°C. 1/4 reaction products were run on a 20% Native PAGE gel and stained by ethidium bromide.

Storage

Recombinant proteins in solution are temperature sensitive and must be stored at -80°C to prevent degradation. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles and keep on ice when not in storage.
