Confocal Microscopy (CM), Immunofluorescence (IF), Labeling (Lbl), Tissue Printing (TP), Western Blotting (WB)
Immunogen KLH-conjugated synthetic peptide conserved across all known plant, algal and (cyano)bacterial RbcL protein sequences (form I L8S8 and form II L2), including Arabidopsis thaliana AtCg00490, Hordeum vulgare P05698, Oryza sativa P0C510, Chlamydomonas reinhardtii P00877, Synechococcus PCC 7920 A5CKC5
Specificity Antibody is a cellular [compartment marker] of plastid stroma or a cytopasmmarker in cyanobacteria. Antibody can detect Rubisco protein from 31.25 fmoles. Antibody will detect Rubisco Form I and Form II, therefore is suitable for workwith samples from Dinoflagellates, Haptophytes and Ochrophytes (diatoms,Raphidophytes, brown algae) as well as higher plants. This antibody can be usedto quantify Rubisco protein in plant and algal samples.
Characteristics Expected / apparent Molecular Weight of the Antigene: 52.7 kDa (Arabidopsis thaliana), 52.5 kDa (cyanobacteria), 52.3 (Chlamydomonas reinhardtii)
Purification serum
Background AGI Code: ATCG00490
This antibody is especially suitable for quantifying of Rubisco in plant and algal samples. Rubisco (Ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase) catalyzes the rate-limiting step of CO2 fixation in photosynthetic organisms. It is demonstrably homologous from purple bacteria to flowering plants and consists of two protein subunits, each present in 8 copies. In plants and green algae, the large subunit (~55 kDa) is coded by the chloroplast rbcL gene, and the small subunit (15 kDa) is coded by a family of nuclear rbcS genes.
Molecular Weight 52.7 kDa (Arabidopsis thaliana), 52.5 kDa (cyanobacteria), 52.3 (Chlamydomonas reinhardtii)
