BSA-conjugated synthetic peptide derived from a highly conserved sequence of Lhcb2 proteins from angiosperms (monocots and dicots) and gymnosperms, including Arabidopsis thaliana Lhcb2.1 UniProt: Q9SHR7, TAIR: AT2G05100, Lhcb2.2 UniProt: Q9S7J7, TAIR:AT2G05070, Lhcb2.3 UniProt:Q9XF87, TAIR:AT3G27690
28.6 | 25 kDa for Arabidopsis thaliana
Total proteins from Arabidopsis thaliana (1), (3), Chlamydomonas reinhardtii (2),(4) and Acer pseudoplatanus (5) were extracted with 2% SDS in 100mM TRIS-HCl, pH 6.8, with protease inhibitor denatured with 100 mM DTT at 85°C for 5 min were separated on 12% SDS-PAGE and blotted for 1h to nitrocellulose membrane using semi-dry transfer. Blots were blocked with 5% milk overnight at 4°C with agitation. Blot was incubated in the primary antibody at a dilution of 1:2000 for 1h at RT with agitation in TBS-T. 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 RT with agitation. Blot was incubated in secondary antibody (anti-rabbit IgG horse radish peroxidase conjugated) diluted to 1:25 000 for 1h at RT with agitation. The blot was washed as above and developed with chemiluminescent detection reagent. Exposure time was 10 seconds.

Antibody format is a total IgG fraction, which means that it is a pool of polyclonal antibodies obtained by purification of serum on Protein G, not on a specific antigen (peptide) column.
Immunoprecipitation has been done using Immunoprecipitation kit from Roche, Cat.No. 11 719 386 001.
Protein is processed into mature form (Jansson 1999).
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.
A molecular characterisation of the LHCII proteins can be found in Caffarri et al. (2004) A Look within LHCII: Differential Analysis of the Lhcb1−3 Complexes Building the Major Trimeric Antenna Complex of Higher-Plant Photosynthesis. Biochemistry 43 (29): 9467–9476.
