product information
Background LCY (lycopene beta-cyclase) is an enzyme (EC: of beta carotene biosynthesis pathway.  Catalyzes the double cyclization reaction which converts lycopene to beta-carotene and neurosporene to beta-zeacarotene. Protein is encoded by LCY1 gene.

application example

western blot using anti-LCY | lycopene beta-cyclase (chloroplastic)  antibodies

Total protein from Arabidopsis thaliana leaves, wilde type and Lut2 (Arabidopsis thaliana mutant devoid of lycopene-epsilon-cyclase, an enzyme at the same branching point catalyzed by lycopene-beta-cyclase (LCY)) corresponding to 0.5 µg of chlorophylls, were extracted with loading buffer (10% glycerol, 62.5 mM Tris pH 6.8, 2% SDS, 5% β-mercaptoethanol) and denatured at 100°C (boiling water) for 1 min.

Proteins were separated on 12% SDS-PAGE (Laemly) and blotted 1h to PVDF using tank transfer. Blots were blocked with blocking solution (PBS 1X, 0.2% w/v Tween, 5% powder milk) for 1h at room temperature (RT) with agitation. Blot was incubated in the primary antibody diluted in blocking solution, at a dilution of from 1:1000 to 1:128000) for 1h at RT with agitation. The antibody solution was decanted and the blot was rinsed briefly twice, then washed 3 times for 10 min in blocking solution at RT with agitation. Blot was incubated in secondary antibody (anti-rabbit IgG alkaline phosphatase conjugated, diluted to 1:30 000 in blocking buffer for 1h at RT with agitation. The blot was washed 2 times for 10 min in blocking solution and once with PBS 1X solution for 10 min, then developed in developing buffer NBT/BCIP by manual agitation.

Mutant devoid of LCY is not available (not viable) and using lut2 mutant allowed to test if the antibody discriminates the two different cyclases.
