CCS | Chloroplastic copper chaperone for SOD
AS07 219 | Clonality: Polyclonal | Host: Rabbit | Reactivity: A. thaliana, B. juncea, Z. mays, O. sativa

The antibody was raised to the Arabidopsis thaliana full length CCs protein Q4ZJI5, fused to His-tag. Overexpressed using pET28a vector in Bl21 E. coli (Cd+) and purified using His-column. After purification, the His tag was cleaved using thrombin and then theprotein was purified using Resource-Q column connected to HPLC.

Copper is an essential element for function of chloroplasts. It is a co-factor for superoxide dismutase (SOD) and for plastocyanin. Copper is transported to chloroplasts with a help of Copper Chaperones, which carry out the delivery of copper from transporters to targets. In the last step chaperone binds to a copper dependent enzyme and inserts the copper ions into its active site. The Arabidopsis thaliana gene AtCCS encodes a copper chaperone for SOD. The AtCCS protein was localized to chloroplasts where it may supply copper to the stromal Cu/ZnSOD.
