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. Lhcb1 is the most abundant chlorophyll a/b-binding protein in eukaryotic phototrophs and often is coded by several nuclear genes.


BSA-conjugated synthetic peptide derived from Arabidopsis thaliana At1g29910 (Lhcb1.1), At1g29920 (Lhcb1.2), At1g29930 (Lhcb1.3, most expressed), At2g34430  (Lhcb1.4), and At2g34420 (Lhcb1.5)

Host Rabbit
Clonality Polyclonal
Purity Affinity purified serum
Format Lyophilized in PBS pH 7.4
Quantity 100 ĩg
Reconstitution For reconstitution add 100 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.

Tested applications western blot (WB)
