product information

The major light-harvesting antenna complex II (LHCII) in photosynthetic eukaryotes is located in the thylakoid membrane of the chloroplast. It is a heterotrimeric complex formed by up to 3 different individual subtypes of chlorophyll a/b-binding proteins: Lhcb1, Lhcb2, and Lhcb3. Lhcb2 is often coded by several nuclear genes and is found together with Lhcb1 within the mobile LHCII trimers involved in state1-state2 transition.
A molecular characterisation of the LHCII proteins can be found in Caffarri et al. (2004) A Look within LHCII:  Differential Analysis of the Lhcb1−3 Complexes Building the Major Trimeric Antenna Complex of Higher-Plant Photosynthesis. Biochemistry 43 (29): 9467–9476.


BSA-conjugated synthetic peptide derived from a highly conserved sequence of Lhcb2 proteins from angiosperms (monocots and dicots) and gymnosperms, including Arabidopsis thaliana Lhcb2.1 UniProt: Q9SHR7, TAIR: AT2G05100, Lhcb2.2 UniProt: Q9S7J7, TAIR:AT2G05070, Lhcb2.3 UniProt:Q9XF87, TAIR:AT3G27690

antibody format  



total IgG in PBS pH 7.4,



200 µl

- for reconstitution add 200 µl of sterile water


store lyophilized/reconstituted at -20°C; once reconstituted make aliquots to avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles. Please, remember to spin tubes briefly prior to opening them to avoid any losses that might occur from lyophilized material adhering to the cap or sides of the tubes.

tested applications  

western blot (WB), immunoprecipitation (IP)
