Lhcii Type III Chlorophyll A/B-Binding Protein (Lhcb3) antibody

Details for Product No. ABIN93508
Arabidopsis thaliana, Barley (Hordeum vulgare), Green bean (Phaseolus vulgaris), Maize/Corn (Zea mays), Pea (Pisum sativum), Rice (Oryza sativa), Spinach (Spinacia oleracea), Tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum)
Western Blotting (WB)
Immunogen BSA-conjugated synthetic peptide derived from a highly conserved sequence of Lhcb3 proteins from angiosperms (monocots and dicots) and gymnosperms, including Arabidopsis thaliana Lhcb3 UniProt: Q9S7M0,TAIR:At5g54270. This sequence is highly conserved even in Ginko biloba and one of the major LHCII-forms of Physcomitrella patens.
Isotype IgG
Characteristics Expected / apparent Molecular Weight of the Antigene: 24 / 26 kDa for Arabidopsis thaliana
Purification affinity purified
Background AGI Code: At5g54270
The major light-harvesting antenna complex II (LHCII) in photsynthetic eukaryotes is located in the thylakoid membrane of the chloroplast. It is a heterotrimeric complex formed by up to 3 different individual subtypes of chlorophyll a/b-binding proteins: Lhcb1, Lhcb2, and Lhcb3. While Lhcb1 and Lhcb2 are quite similar and regularily present in multiple gene-copies, the Lhcb3 protein differs in pigment-composition and molecular size and often is coded by only a single gene. Lhcb3 seems not to be present in the mobile LHCII trimers involved in state 1-state 2 transitions. A molecular characterisation of the LHCII proteins can be found in Caffarri et al. (2004) A Look within LHCII: Differential Analysis of the Lhcb1-3 Complexes Building the Major Trimeric Antenna Complex of Higher-Plant Photosynthesis. Biochemistry 43 (29): 9467-9476.
Molecular Weight expected: 24 kDa, apparent: 26 kDa for Arabidopsis thaliana
