product information

Isocitrate lyase (EC=, localized in glyoxysome is an enzyme involved in mobilization of storage lipis during plant seedling growth. Catalalyzed reaction is a conversion of isocitrate to succinate and glyoxylate. Alternative names of this enzyme: isocitrase, isocitritase, isocitratase, glyoxylate-lyase, isocitrate glyoxylatelyase.


Purified native ICL from Ricinus communis

Additional information

Protein or membrane sample should be treated at 70°C for 10 min before loading on the gel.

ICL protein is most abundant in young cotyledons in germinating seedlings, not in rosette leaves or shoots.

Application example

Westrn blot using anti-ICL antibodies

Arabidopsis thaliana seeds were germinated according to Benamar et al. (2013). Samples: dry seeds (1), 48h germination (2),  72h germination (3),  D4 (4), D7 (5).  20 µg of total protein extracted with SSE buffer containing antiproteases + DTT 10mM + PMSF 1mM and denatured with SB at 90°C for 3 min were separated on 12% Stain Free Gel (Biorad) and blotted 1h to PVDF using tank transfer. Blot was blocked with 3% milk in TBS 0,1% Tween 20 1h at RT with agitation. Blot was incubated in the primary antibody at a dilution of 1:1 000 for 1h30 at RT. The antibody solution was decanted and the blot was rinsed briefly twice, then washed 3 times for 15 min in TBS 0,1% Tween20 at RT with agitation. Blot was incubated in secondary antibody (goat anti-rabbit IgG horse radish peroxidase conjugated, from Agrisera AS09 602) diluted to 1:75 000 in TBST for 45 min. at RT with agitation. The blot was washed as above and developed for 2 min with Clarify Western ECL (Biorad).
