product information

Pathogenesis-related (PR) proteins, are induced in response to the infection of plants with microbial pathogens. Combinations of glucanase I and chitinase I are potent inhibitors of fungal growth in vitro however precise mechanism of that is still not known.  Glucanase I  (PR-2) and chitinase I (PR-3) contribute to defense against fungal infection and are currently used as markers for innate immunity, and in particular the ethylene/jasmonate signalling pathway in pathogenesis.


Purified tobacco class I chitinase. The preparation used is a mixture of two class I isoforms (Shinshi et al., 1990; van Buuren et al., 1992): 1) Chitinase A (CHN A) P08252 encoded by gene chn48 derived from the N. tomentosiformis ancestor of tobacco. 2) Chitinase B (CHN B) P24091 encoded by gene chn50 derived from the N. sylvestris ancestor of tobacco.

Host Rabbit
Clonality Polyclonal
Purity Total IgG
Format Lyophilized in PBS pH 7.4
Quantity 2 mg
Reconstitution For reconstitution add 100 µl of sterile water.
Storage 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 Co-Immunoprecipitation (IP) (Co-IP), Immunolocalization (IL), Western blot (WB)
