This antibody can be used as a loading control antibody in cyanobacteria.
Immunofluorescence has been done by labelling Synechococcus elongatus cells at 30°C for 2 hours with FtsZ antibodies diluted to 1: 500 in blocking buffer. Detection images can be found in Kabeya et al (2010).

Total protein samples (5 or 10 µg) from: Arabidopsis thaliana, leaf (1), Synechocystis 6803 motile (2), Synechocystis 6803 GT (glucose tolerant strain) (3), Synechococcus elongates 7942 (4), Marker - Pierce™ Prestained Protein MW Marker (kat #26612) were extracted with buffer (10mM Tris HCl, pH 8.0, 0.5% LDS, 4% glycerol, 0.1 mM EDTA ) were mixed with sample buffer and denatured for 5 min at 95°C. Samples were separated on 10% SDS -PAGE and blotted 1h to nitrocellulose membrane (Amersham Protran) using sem i-dry transfer (Bio -Rad) in standard transfer buffer in presence of 10% methanol. Transfer of proteins to the membrane was checked using 0,5% Ponceau S staining before the blocking step. Blots were blocked in buffer (2% low -fat milk in 1xPBS, 0,1% Tween) for 1h at room temperature (RT) with agitation. Blots were incubated in the primary antibody at a dilution of 1: 1000 at RT with agitation. 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 PBS -T at RT with agitation. Blot was incubated in secondary antibody ( goat anti -rabbit IgG, AS09 602, Agrisera) diluted to 1:30 000 for 1h at RT with agitation. The blot was washed as above and developed for 5 min with C larity Western ECL Substrate and ChemiDoc detection system.
