Application examples Application example

western blot with anti-NR antibodies

20 µg of total protein from Arabidopsis thaliana leaf (1)  and Hordeum vulgare leaf (2) were extracted with Protein Extraction Buffer PEB (AS08 300). Samples were diluted with 1X sample buffer (NuPAGE LDS sample buffer (Invitrogen) supplemented with 50 mM DTT and heat at 70°C for 5 min and keept on ice before loading. Protein samples were separated on 4-12% Bolt Plus gels,  LDS-PAGE and blotted for 70 minutes to PVDF using tank transfer. Blots were blocked immediately following transfer in 2% blocking reagent or 5% non-fat milk dissolved 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: 5 000 (in blocking reagent) for 1h at room temperature with agitation. The antibody solution was decanted and the blot was rinsed briefly twice, and then washed 1x15 min and 3x5 min with TBS-T at room temperature with agitation. Blots were incubated in secondary antibody (anti-rabbit IgG horse radish peroxidase conjugated, recommended secondary antibody AS09 602, Agrisera) diluted to 1:20 000 in blocking reagent for 1h at room temperature with agitation. The blots were washed as above. The blot was developed for 5 min with chemiluminescent detection reagent pf extreme femtogram range, according the manufacturers instructions. Images of the blots were obtained using a CCD imager (VersaDoc MP 4000) and Quantity One software (Bio-Rad). Exposure time was 5 minutes.

Purification of THB1 fromC. reinhardtii cell culture.Protein samples from different stages of purification were analyzed by electrophoresis. (A) Samples of protein extracts before and after lysis ofC. reinhardtii cells with liquid nitrogen. Proteins separated on 16.5% Tris-tricine gel then transferred to nitrocellulose and immunostained with antibodies against proteins localized to different cellular compartments. Lysis by liquid nitrogen enriches the lysate with soluble proteins without enrichment of proteins found in major algal organelles. Histone H3 protein is located in the nucleus, nitrate reductase is a soluble cytosolic protein and the ATP synthase ? subunit is part of the thylakoid membrane of the chloroplast. (B) Samples from different steps in the purification procedure were separated by electrophoresis. Following separation, the proteins within the gel were visualized using silver stain. (C) Proteins prepared identically to those detected in panel B were transferred to nitrocellulose followed by immunostaining with polyclonal antibodies specific for THB1. In addition to the protein samples, a lane was used for molecular weight markers (Spectra LR, ThermoScientific). The numbers indicated between the panels represents location of the markers (kDa molecular mass). WC, whole cell protein extract. Lys, protein extract lysate, and Pel, protein pellet following liquid nitrogen fracturing. QFF, concentrated sample following anion exchange chromatography.

Expression of NR and APT in edited mutants compared with the WT. (A) Western blot analysis with a specific antibody against nitrate reductase (upper panel). Total protein content was assessed by Coomassie staining (lower panel). ATP-? was used as a reference protein. (B) Comparison of gene and amino acid sequence of APT between edited mutants and the WT. PCR amplification of APT from cDNA of apt mutants and WT cells (upper panel) and corresponding sequences (lower panels), showing the presence of frameshift mutations. M: size marker.

Additional information

In Chlamydmonas reinhardtii anti-NR antibody is also reacting with L-Aminoacid Oxidase (a nitrogen scavenging enzyme induced during nitrogen starvation).

Using this antibody genome editing in Chlorella vulgaris UTEX395 by CRISPR-Cas9 system has been demonstrated as described in Kim et al. (2021)

Chemiluminescent detection is advised for NR detection using this antibody.

Assimilatory nitrate reductase (NR), (EC. catalyses the reduction of nitrate to nitrite in the cytoplasm. Plants contain 2 forms of NR: NADH-NR (most common form in plants and algae, predominantly found in green tissues) and NAD(P)H-NR (uses NADH or NADPH as the electron donor, constitutively expressed in plants at a low level). NADH-NR is a homodimer of two identical subunits (100-115 kDa each, hold together by a Mo-cofactor) each of them coded by up to three genes (NR1-3, NIA1-NIA3).
