product information

This antibody is especially suitable for quantifying of Rubisco in plant and algal samples.

Rubisco (Ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase) catalyzes the rate-limiting step of CO2 fixation in photosynthetic organisms. It is demonstrably homologous from purple bacteria to flowering plants and consists of two protein subunits, each present in 8 copies. In plants and green algae, the large subunit (~55 kDa) is coded by the chloroplast rbcL gene, and the small subunit (15 kDa) is coded by a family of nuclear rbcS genes.


KLH-conjugated synthetic peptide conserved across all known plant, algal and (cyano)bacterial RbcL protein sequences (form I L8S8 and form II L2), including Arabidopsis thaliana AtCg00490, Hordeum vulgare P05698, Oryza sativa P0C510, Chlamydomonas reinhardtii P00877, Synechococcus PCC 7920 A5CKC5

Host Rabbit
Clonality Polyclonal
Purity Affinity purified serum
Format Lyophilized in PBS pH 7.4
Quantity 50 ĩg
Reconstitution For reconstitution add 50 ĩl 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.

Additional information

anti-RbcL can be used as a cellular [compartment marker] of plastid stroma (cytoplasm in cyanobacteria) and detects RbcL protein from 31.25 fmoles. As both forms (I and II) are detected it is suitable for work with samples from Dinoflagellates, Haptophytes and Ochrophytes (diatoms, Raphidophytes, brown algae) as well as higher plants. This antibody together with Agrisera Rubisco protein standard is very suitable to quantify Rubisco in plant and algal samples.

application example

western blot using affinity purified anti-RbcL antibodies

Total protein from Populus T89 were extracted with “KEB buffer”, precipitated with ethanol on ice and denatured with “loading buffer” at 100°C for 10 min, separated on 8% SDS-PAGE  and blotted O/N to PVDF using (wet blot) tank transfer. Blots were blocked with 5%TBS milk, for 1h at room temperature (RT) with agitation. Blot was incubated in the primary antibody at a dilution of 1: 1 000 TBS for 2h at RT with agitation. The antibody solution was decanted and the blot was rinsed briefly with TBS-T, then washed for 1h in TBS-T at RT with agitation. Blot was incubated in secondary antibody (goat anti-rabbit IgG HRP-conjugated, from Agrisera, AS09 602) diluted to 1:5000 in TBS-M (milk 5%) for 1h at RT with agitation. The blot was washed as above and developed with SuperSignal® West Pico Chemiluminescent Substrate from Pierce for 10s increment until exposure time of 30s total.
