product information

PsaC is a conserved, chloroplast-encoded, Fe-S binding protein of approximately 10 kDa, present in all known Photosystem I complexes. It is located on the stromal side of the thylacoid membranes. PsaC coordinates the Fe–S clusters FA and FB through two cysteine-rich domains.


KLH-conjugated synthetic peptide conserved in all known PsaC proteins includingArabidopsis thaliana AtCg01060, Hordeum vulgare P69416, Oryza sativa P0C360, Chlamydomonas reinhardtii Q00914, Synechococcus elongatus Q31QV2

Host Rabbit
Clonality Polyclonal
Purity Serum
Format Lyophilized
Quantity 50 µl antibody, 100 µl protein standard
Storage Store lyophilized/reconstituted at -20°C; once reconstituted make aliquots to avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles. Please, remember to spin tubes briefly prior to opening them to avoid any losses that might occur from lyophilized material adhering to the cap or sides of the tubes.

Additional information

Peptide target used to elicit this antibody is well conserved in all photoautotrophs except some cyanobacteria, some red algae and Cyanophora paradoxa, which contain a conserved substitution of a valine to an isoleucine. The performance of the antibodies has been confirmed against taxa containing both the valine and isoleucine variants.


For reconstitution of PsaC antibodies (AS10 939) add 50 µl of sterile water. For reconstitution of PsaC positive control add 100 µl of sterile water.

Additional information

In some species minor cross reactions with some larger proteins are seen. These may contain related iron-sulfur binding motifs. Therefore size verification of the reacting band is required. Due to the small size of the protein, care should be taken to differentiate between chemiluminescent signal from PsaC and non-specific signals from chlotophylls or lipids if pigment is retained near the bottom of the blot.

Protein standard: use a load of 2 µl per well with ECL detection system and 4 µl per well with alkaline phospatase.

application example

Wesatern blot with anti-PsaC antibody
2 µg of total protein from (1) Horderum vulgare leaf extracted with PEB (AS08 300), (2) Chlamydomonas reinhardtii total cell extracted with PEB (AS08 300), (3) Synechococcus sp. 7942 total cell extracted with PEB (AS08 300) were separated on 4-12% NuPage (Invitrogen) LDS-PAGE and blotted 1h to PVDF. Blots were blocked immediately following transfer in 2% ECL Advance blocking reagent (GE Healthcare) 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: 50 000 for 1h at room temperature 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 TBS-T at room temperature with agitation. Blots were incubated in secondary antibody (anti-rabbit IgG horse radish peroxidase conjugated) diluted to 1:10 000 in 2% ECL Advance blocking solution for 1h at room temperature with agitation. The blots were washed as above and developed for 5 min with ECL Advance detection reagent according the manufacturers instructions. Images of the blots were obtained using a CCD imager (FluorSMax, Bio-Rad) and Quantity One software (Bio-Rad).
