STN8 | Serine/threonine-protein kinase STN8 (chloroplastic)
AS10 1601 | Clonality: Polyclonal | Host: Rabbit | Reactivity: Arabidopsis thaliana, Triticum aestivum
|Recommended dilution||1 : 2000 (WB)|
|Expected | apparent MW||
54.9 kDa or 46 kDa on 6 M urea gel
|Confirmed reactivity||Arabidopsis thaliana, Triticum aestivum
|Predicted reactivity||Oryza sativa|
|Not reactive in||No confirmed exceptions from predicted reactivity are currently known.|
For best results with this antibody sample buffer needs to contain 6 M urea (138mM TrisHCl pH 6.8, 6M urea, 22.2% Glycerol, 4.3% SDS).
STN8 is a nuclear encoded protein which is localized in chloroplast, hence posses a chloroplastic target peptides (cTP) at the beginning of the amino acid sequence which is cut off. Accroding to TargetP (program that predicts the length of the cTP:s) the length of cTP for Stn8 is 49 amino acids. STN8 portein mobility can be also affected by urea present in the gel.

Thylakoids (2 or 3 µg of chlorophyll/lane) from Arabidopsis thaliana wide type (WT) and a stn8 mutant were isolated according to Sirpiö et al (2011, Methods Mol Biol. 2011; 775:19-30). Denaturated samples were separated on 12 % SDS-PAGE with 6 M urea and blotted for 1h to a PVDF membrane using a semi-dry transfer. Blots were blocked with 5% milk in TBS for 1h at room temperature (RT) with slow agitation. Blots were incubated in primary antibodies at a dilution of 1: 1 000 overnight at 4°C with slow agitation in 1 % milk/TTBS. Blots were rinsed briefly once, then washed twice for 10 min with TTBS at RT with vigorous agitation. Blots were incubated in secondary antibodies (anti-rabbit IgG horse radish peroxidase conjugated) in 1% milk/TTBS for 2 hours at RT with slow agitation, washed as above and incubated for 5 min with ECL solution according to the manufacturers’ instructions. Exposure time was 2 min. Since the STN8 antibody cross-reacts with LHCII, the lower part of the gel should be cut out before blotting.
