Purified tobacco class I chitinase. The preparation used is a mixture of two class I isoforms (Shinshi et al., 1990; van Buuren et al., 1992): 1) Chitinase A (CHN A) P08252 encoded by gene chn48 derived from the N. tomentosiformis ancestor of tobacco. 2) Chitinase B (CHN B) P24091 encoded by gene chn50 derived from the N. sylvestris ancestor of tobacco.
35, 34 | 32 and 34 kDa
Detection of tobacco chitinase I in ng loaded per respective well using anti-tobacco chitinase I antibodies. Primary antibodies have been used at 8 µg/ml.
Important note: For blocking 5 % skim milk in PBS without Ca++ should be used.
This antibody is purified by affinity chromarography on Portein G.
Pathogenesis-related (PR) proteins, are induced in response to the infection of plants with microbial pathogens. Combinations of glucanase I and chitinase I are potent inhibitors of fungal growth in vitro however precise mechanism of that is still not known. Glucanase I (PR-2) and chitinase I (PR-3) contribute to defense against fungal infection and are currently used as markers for innate immunity, and in particular the ethylene/jasmonate signalling pathway in pathogenesis.
