Protein A is a surface protein (approximately 56kD in size) originally discovered within the cell wall of Staphylococcus aureus. While important for bacterial survival, Protein A has beneficial uses in immunology for its high affinity binding to immunoglobulins (especially the IgG isotype). This high affinity property makes Protein A essential in the large scale purification. Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) is an enzyme that utilize organic peroxide compounds as electron donors. Naturally provides protection for plants against pathogens, but can be utilized in molecular biology to convert various substrates to detectable compounds (such as in Western Blotting and
Protein A Peroxidase Conjugated was prepared from chromatographically pure Protein A. Protein A Peroxidase Conjugated was assayed by immunoelectrophoresis resulted in a single precipitin arc against anti-Peroxidase and anti-Protein A. No reaction was observed against anti-Protein G.
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Western Blot: 1:10,000-1:40,000
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at -20 degrees C. Stable for 12 months at -20 degrees C. Reconstitute with sterile buffer or dH2O. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20 degrees C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer. Labeled with horseradish peroxidase (HRP). Sodium azide is a potent inhibitor of peroxidase and should not be added to HRP conjugates. HRP conjugates are sensitive to light.
