product information

FtsZ (cell division GTPase) is a well characterized protein of the bacterial cell division apparatus. This protein accumulates early in dividing cells, and has a crucial role during septum formation in most bacteria as well as in chloroplasts. It has also been accepted as the bacterial cytoskeletal counterpart to eukaryotic microtubules.


Whole cyanobacterial (Anabaena PCC 7120) FtsZ protein Q3MC27 overexpressed in E.coli.

Host Rabbit
Clonality Polyclonal
Purity Serum
Format Lyophilized
Quantity 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
Immunofluorescence (IF), Immunolocalization (IL), Western Blot (WB)
