KLH-conjugated synthetic peptide derived from available bacterial GlnA sequences with perfect conservation in alpha, beta, gamma Proteobacteria, Enterobacteria, Thermotogales, Low GC Gram+, Cyanobacteria (except weak conservation with Trichodesmium thiebautii) including Synechocystis PCC 6803 Q59981
Alpha, beta, gamma proteobacteria, Arthropsira sp. PCC 8005, Crenarchaeotes, Enterobacteria, Euryarchaeotes, Thermotogales
3 µg of total protein from Trichodesmium IMS 101 extracted with Agrisera Protein Extration Buffer (AS08 300) (1-8) and GlnA protein standard 0.3, 0.15, 0.07 pmol (9-11) were 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 (anti-hen IgY horseradish peroxidase conjugated) 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 in extreme femtogram range, according the manufacturer's instructions. Images of the blots were obtained using a CCD imager nd Quantity One software Exposure time was 10 seconds.
Peptide target used to elicit this antibody has a weak, sporadic conservation with Glutamine Synthetase to III, antibody not expected to detect this enzyme. Weak conservation with some Glutaminyl-tRNA synthetase (Glutamine--tRNA ligase) (GLNRS), but this antibody is not expected to detect this enzyme.
Glutamine synthetase (EC=184.108.40.206) is the key enzyme in the incorporation of mineral nitrogen into glutamine. Activity of this enzyme is controlled by adenylarion under conditions of abundant glutamine.
