GST (26H1) Mouse mAb (Alexa Fluor® 555 Conjugate) #3720
|IF-IC||All||Transfected Only||Mouse IgG2a|
Reactivity Key: All=All species expected
Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot.
Specificity / Sensitivity
GST (26H1) Mouse mAb (Alexa Fluor® 555 Conjugate) detects transfected glutathione S-transferase (GST) fusion proteins.
Source / Purification
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a GST fusion protein. The antibody was conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 555 under optimal conditions with an F/P ratio 2-6.
This Cell Signaling Technology antibody was conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 555 fluorescent dye and tested in-house for immunofluorescence in cells transfected with GST-tagged protein.
Epitope tags are useful for the labeling and detection of proteins using immunoblotting, immunoprecipitation, and immunostaining techniques. Because of their small size, they are unlikely to affect the tagged protein's biochemical properties.
Glutathione S-transferase (GST) is a widely used fusion partner, since it provides both an easily detectable tag and a simple purification process with little effect on the biological function of the protein of interest. Numerous vectors containing GST-Tag have been developed for both prokaryotic and eukaryotic systems over the past decade (1-3).
