Product Description The 7-methylguanosine cap structure(m7Gppp, Cap0) is a specific feature in eukaryotic mRNA, which is required for mRNA stability, splicing, nuclear export, effective translation, and mRNA decay. Vaccinia Capping Enzyme, a heterodimer of D1 and D12 subunits, adding the Cap0 structure to the 5' end of the RNA. The D1 subunit comprises an N-terminal RNA triphosphatase(TPase), a guanylyltransferase(GTase), and a C-terminal guanine-N7-methyltransferase(MTase). The D12 subunit binds and stimulates the MTase.
mRNA Cap 2'-O-Methyltransferase (Kactus #MEH-VE101) is required to generate Cap 1 structure that reduces cellular innate immune response when the RNA is used in vivo.
Expressed in an E.coli strain carries the genes of the Vaccinia virus Capping Enzyme.
