Firefly Luciferase Polyclonal Antibody

Catalog No.:AB0131-200

Price / Unit: EUR 300.00

Source: Goat

Quantity/unit size: 600 µg

Description: Goat polyclonal antibody to Firefly luciferase. Luciferase is a widely used reporter protein to study gene expression. Luciferase catalyses a bioluminescent reaction which requires luciferin as a substrate, ATP and Mg2+. A cell extract containing luciferase mixed luciferin in the presence of ATP and Mg2+, results in a flash of light that decays rapidly and can be detected by a luminometer. The total light emission is proportional to the luciferase activity of the sample.

Alternative names: Luc and Luciferin 4-monooxygenase antibody.

Form: Polyclonal antibody supplied as a 200 µl (3 mg/ml) aliquot in PBS, 20% glycerol and 0.05% sodium azide. This antibody is epitope-affinity purified from goat antiserum.

Immunogen: Purified recombinant peptide derived from within residues 340 aa to the C-terminus of Luciferase produced in E. coli.

Specificity: In 293HEK cells transfected with cds plasmid detects a band of 62 kDa by Western blot.
