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.
Protein A is suitable for use as an antigen, as a control or standard in assays, for conjugation and for most other immunological methods. This recombinant Protein A contains only IgG binding domains, ensuring maximum specific IgG binding.
Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
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.
