Application examples

Application examples Application example

2 µg of total protein extracted with PEB (AS08 300) from  leaf tissue of (1) Arabidopsis thaliana, (2) Spinacia oleracea, (3) Lycopersicon esculentum, (4) Glycine max, (5) Populus sp., (6) Zea mays and (7) Hordeum vulgare were separated on 4-12% NuPage (Invitrogen) LDS-PAGE and blotted 1h to nitrocellulose. In parallel a dilution row (a-g: 10 - 5 - 2.5 - 1.25 - 0.63 - 0.32 - 0.16 µg protein/lane) from sample 1 (Arabidopsis) was processed. Filters were blocked 1h with 2% low-fat milk powder in TBS-T (0.1% TWEEN 20) and probed with anti-AtpB (AS08 085, 1:5000, 1h) and secondary anti-rabbit (1:10000, 1 h) antibody (HRP conjugated, recommended secondary antibody AS09 602) in TBS-T containing 2% low fat milk powder. Antibody incubations were followed by washings in TBS-T (15, +5, +5, +5 min). All steps were performed at RT with agitation. Signal was detected with chemiluminescent substrate, using a Fuji LAS-3000 CCD (300s, standard sensitivity). 

western blot        detection of AtpB in animal and plant tissue

2 µg of total protein from (1) cow muscle, (2) chicken muscle, (3) pig muscle, (4) rat liver, (5) salmon muscle, (6) seal muscle, (8) Arabidopsis thaliana, (9) Zea mays extracted with Protein Extration Buffer, PEB (AS08 300) and separated on  4-12% NuPage (Invitrogen) LDS-PAGE and blotted 1h to PVDF. Blots were blocked immediately following transfer in 2% blocking reagent  in 20 mM Tris, 137 mM sodium chloride pH 7.6 with 0.1% (v/v) Tween-20 (TBS-T) for 1h at room temperature with agitation. Blots were incubated in the primary antibody at a dilution of 1: 50 000 for 1h at room temperature with agitation. The antibody solution was decanted and the blot was rinsed briefly twice, then washed once for 15 min and 3 times for 5 min in TBS-T at room temperature with agitation. Blots were incubated in secondary antibody (Agrisera anti-rabbit IgG horse radish peroxidase conjugated, AS09 602) diluted to 1:50 000 in 2% blocking solution for 1h at room temperature with agitation. The blots were washed as above and developed for 5 min with chemiluminescent detection reagent according to the manufacturers instructions. Images of the blots were obtained using a CCD imager (FluorSMax, Bio-Rad) and Quantity One software (Bio-Rad). Exposure time was 30 seconds.

Additional information

Additional information

The anti-AtpB antibody will detect the mitochondrial form of the F1 ATP  synthase subcomplex, as well as the chloroplastic CF1 Atp Synthase, and most known bacterial F-type Atp Synthases. Peptide used for antibody production is located in a beta sheet, which is partly exposed near the surface of the AtpB protein.

Anti-AtpB antibody was used as a loading control in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii and Synechocystis sp. PCC6803.

Blue Native gel electrophoresis (BN-PAGE) has been performed on samples solubilized with digitonin (4:1) and loaded at 100 µg/well. Gel thickness was 2 mm with 4.5-16 % gradient.

Antibody is recognizing mitochondrial form of AtpB Subota el. al (2011).

This antibody can be used as a loading control for bacteria, Bacillus cereus.
