Phosphoribosylaminoimidazole succinocarboxamide synthetase (PAICS, ADE2H1, AIRC, PAIS) is a bifunctional enzyme involved in de novo purine (adenine, quanine) biosynthesis in vertebrates. PAICS is an important enzyme in rapidly growing tumor cells that rely on de novo purine synthesis. PAICS has both 5-aminoimidazole ribonucleotide carboxylase (AIRc) and 4-(N-succinylcarboxamide)-5-aminoimidazole ribonucleotide synthetase (SAICARs) activities and is a target for potential anticancer drugs.
Anti-PAICS polyclonal antibody reacts with chicken, bovine, human, mouse, and rat phosphoribosylaminoimidazole succinocarboxamide synthetases.
Synthetic peptide directed towards the N terminal region of human PAICS
Anti-PAICS polyclonal antibody is used to tag phosphoribosylaminoimidazole succinocarboxamide synthetase for detection and quantitation by Western blotting and in plasma by immunohistochemical (IHC) techniques. It is used as a probe to determine the roles of phosphoribosylaminoimidazole succinocarboxamide synthetase in purine biosynthesis and cancer cell survival.
PAICS is a bifunctional enzyme containing phosphoribosylaminoimidazole carboxylase activity in its N-terminal region and phosphoribosylaminoimidazole succinocarboxamide synthetase in its C-terminal region. It catalyzes steps 6 and 7 of purine biosynthesis. This gene encodes a bifunctional enzyme containing phosphoribosylaminoimidazole carboxylase activity in its N-terminal region and phosphoribosylaminoimidazole succinocarboxamide synthetase in its C-terminal region. It catalyzes steps 6 and 7 of purine biosynthesis. The gene is closely linked and divergently transcribed with a locus that encodes an enzyme in the same pathway, and transcription of the two genes is coordinately regulated. The human genome contains several pseudogenes of this gene. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
