  • Reactivity
  • Confirmed reactivity: Escherichia coli
  • Application Examples
  • Western blot using anti-LexA (E.coli) antibodies

    Escherichia coli cells (1 × 10 8 cells/mL) were lysed in lysis buffer containing 20 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 1 mM EDTA, 1% SDS, and bacterial protease inhibitor cocktail (Sigma) and boiled followed by gel electrophoresis on 15% SDS-PAGE gels. Anti-LexA antibodies were used at 1: 1000. 

    For Western blot anti-LexA antibody can be combined with LexA protein as a positive control

  • Additional Information
  • Additional information: This product can be used in:
    • studies of SOS regulation in E.coli
      detection of bait constructs in yeast two-hybrid system
    • immunolocalization of LexA fusion proteins (fixed with 4 % formaldehyde)
    • immunoprecipiation and ChIP
  • Background
  • Background: LexA represor binds specifically to the SOS-box sequence and represses the genes belonging to the SOS regulation. In response to DNA damage, RecA protein is activated by ss-DNA accumulated in the damaged cells and promotes autocleavage of LexA repressor by its coprotease activity. As a result, DNA repair genes and error prone polymerases are induced, and DNA damage is repaired and mutation is induced (1). The lexA gene is used for yeast two-hybrid experiments as a bait to identify the protein-protein interaction in vivo.
