  • Application example

    western blot using anti-phosphorylated Lhcb2 antibodies

    1 µg of thylakoid membranes isolated from Arabidopsis thaliana wild-type and respective mutants were solubilized with 3X LB (6 M urea, 12% SDS, 30% glycerol, 100 mM DTT, 150 mM Tris pH7.0, 0.8% Comassie G-250). 1 µg of total chlorophyll was loaded and separated on 16% SDS-PAGE, and then blotted for 2 h onto nitrocellulose membrane. Blots were blocked with milk powder for 2 h and then incubated in the primary antibody solution (AS13 2705, 1: 5 000) for 2.5 h, which was then decanted and the blot was washed 3 times for 5 min in TBST. Membrane was incubated in secondary antibody (anti-rabbit IgG horse radish peroxidase conjugated) diluted to 1:10 000 in for 1 h, followed by washing steps as above. All the steps fallowing transfer were performed in room temperature (RT) with agitation. Membrane was developed for 5 min with ECL according to the manufacturer’s instructions and recorded using FujiFilm CCD camera with 30 s increment time for around 5 min.

    western blot using anti-Lhcb2-P | LHCII type II chlorophyll a/b-binding protein, phosphorylated on maize samples

    1.0 µg of chlorophyll from mesophyll (M) and bundle sheath (BS) thylakoids of various treatments of Zea mays extracted with 0.4 M sorbitol, 50 mM Hepes NaOH, pH 7.8, 10 mM NaCl, 5 mM MgCl2 and 2 mM EDTA. Samples were denatured with Laemmli buffer at 75°C for 5 min and were separated on 12% SDS-PAGE and blotted 30 min to PVDF using wet transfer. Blot was blocked with 5% BSA for 1h at room temperature (RT) with agitation. Blot was incubated in the primary antibody at a dilution of 1: 10 000 overnight at 4°C with agitation in 1% BSA in TBS-T. The antibody solution was decanted and the blot was washed 4 times for 5 min in TBS-T at RT with agitation. Blot was incubated in secondary antibody (anti-rabbit IgG horse radish peroxidase conjugated, from Agrisera, AS09 602) diluted to 1:25 000 in  1 % BSA in TBS-T for 1h at RT with agitation. The blot was washed 5 times for 5 min in TBS-T and 2 times for 5 min in TBS, and developed for 1 min with 1.25 mM luminol, 0.198 mM coumaric acid and 0.009% H2O2 in 0.1 M Tris- HCl, pH 8.5. Exposure time in ChemiDoc System was 54 seconds.

  • Background
  • Background:

    The major light-harvesting antenna complex II (LHCII) in photosynthetic eukaryotes is located in the thylakoid membrane of the chloroplast. It is a heterotrimeric complex formed by up to 3 different individual subtypes of chlorophyll a/b-binding proteins: Lhcb1, Lhcb2, and Lhcb3. Lhcb2 is often coded by several nuclear genes and is found together with Lhcb1 within the mobile LHCII trimers involved in state1-state2 transition.

    We always use this antibody when we want to see the Lhcb2 band clearly in Western blot (1:5000 dilution). It is also working on Oryza Sativa. We used it with isolated 2ug thylakoid membrane.

    The antibody is working on Oryza Sativa and Arabidopsis thaliana. We used it with isolated 2ug thylakoid membrane and could get the band (1:5000 dilution)
