Use Agrisera kits to quantify PSI, PSII, Rubisco

Agrisera offers several combinations of antibodies to: Rubisco, PSI and PSII proteins, which together with calibrated protein standards can be used to quantify major photosynthetic proteins.

Photosynthesis Tool Kit – quantitation, PSI, PSII, Rubisco, 

(Agrisera), AS04 051

Western Blot Rubisco quantitation kit

(Agrisera), AS09 409

Beside primary antibodies and quantification standards, the kits also contain matching secondary antibodies of high titer, min. 1> 25 000 1h/RT (AS09 602) and suitable chemiluminescent detection reagent, AgriseraBright in mid picogram range.

Most published antibody to most abundant protein on Earth - Rubisco

Rubisco - most abundant protein on Earth

Rubisco is an amazing protein, and also the most abundant protein on Earth. Agrisera has provided specific antibodies to this enzyme for over 17 years. These antibodies have been cited in thousands of publications and used on a very wide range of species. The Agrisera anti-RbcL form I antibodies are made to a very conserved, 7 amino acid long peptide, and is therefore categorized as a Global Antibody. The specific peptide used is present in Rubisco form I from higher plants, algae and cyanobactera:

Anti-RbcL I | Rubisco large subunit, form I antibodies (AS03 037) - provided at a 50 % discount in February.

Combined with the Rubisco protein standard (AS01 017S) and the Rubisco Western Blot quantitation kit (AS09 409), this antibody can be used for quantification of Rubisco using quantitative western blot method. A short video tutorial for this method can be found here

For photosynthetic bacteria, archea and dinoflagellates, Agrisera offers another antibody: 

Anti-RbcL II | Rubisco large subunit, form II antibodies (AS15 2955) - provided at a 50 % discount in February.

This antibody can be combined with RbcL II quantification standard (AS15 2955S) and applied to quantify RbcL II. 

Agrisera's Rubisco antibody collection also consists of other useful antibodies, like: RbcS (AS07 259A), Rubisco activase (AS10 700), Rubisco chaperones and other proteins. The whole collection can be found here

Good luck with your research!
