product information

UDP-glucose pyrophosphorylase (UGPase, UDPGP) E.C=  is a key enzyme of synthesis of sucrose, cellulose and other saccharides. There are two cytoplasmic isoforms of UGPase-A (which share 94 % identity on amino acid level) and one chloroplastic UGPase-B isoform in Arabidopsis thaliana which share ca. 10-11 % of identity (Kleczkowski et al. 2011).


Recombinant UGPase Q43772 overexpressed and purified from E.coli

Host Rabbit
Clonality Polyclonal
Purity Serum
Format Lyophilized
Quantity 50 µl
Reconstitution For reconstitution add 50 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 Immunolocalization (IL), Western Blot (WB)

 A 1-year-old greehouse grown plant was dissectedinto different tissues, which were then used for enzyme assays and immunoblot analyses. Equal amounts of total protein (7.5 μg) were loaded on each lane. SDS-PAGE was run on a 7.5% gel. Immunoblot was done using Amersham PVDF transfer membrane. Primary antibodies against barley UGPase were used in 1: 1000 dilution. Secondary antibodies (Amersham ECL Rabbit IgG, HRP-Linked Whole Antibody from donkey) were used at 1:10 000.

western blot using plant anti-UGPase antibodies

15 µg of  total soluble protein  extract from leaves and stems of  Solanum tuberosum (1),  Solanum sogarandinum (2),   Lycopersicum esculentum (3)Lycopersicum chilense  (4) , Arabidopsis thaliana (5) , Cucumis sativus (6)Festuca arundinacea  (7) , Nicotiana tabacum (8) and Capsicum annuum (9)  were separated  on 10% SDS-PAGE and blotted onto nitrocellulose .  After blocking with 5% milk in TBST , blots were incubated with the primary antibody at a dilution of 1:1500 in TBST for 1h  at room temperature. Following incubation and wash steps, blots were incubated withSIGMA secondary Anti-Rabbit IgG , Alkaline Phosphatase Conjugate for 1 hour at a dilution of 1:40000 . Blots were developed with the alkaline phosphatase detection system using NBT/BCIP (SIGMA).
