Agrisera supports 13th International Coference for Plant Mitochondrial Biology

Agrisera supported the 13th International Coference for Plant Mitochondrial Biology (ICPMB), held May 26th-30th, in St Malo, France. This biennial meeting is an international forum for junior and senior academics researchers worldwide, who specialize in various aspects of plant mitochondrial biology.

Participants could pick up free hard copies of Agrisera's Educational Posters, prepared in collaboration with scientists in the covered fields, as well as the Agrisera product catalog and Agrisera Western blot troubleshooting guide

Study chloroplast biogenesis and architecture with Agrisera antibodies

Chloroplasts are essential plant cell organelles, responsible for photosynthesis and other important metabolic processes. Their biogenesis and architecture are complex and highly regulated processes. 

Agrisera antibodies can help you investigate various proteins involved in this process.
The antibody collection includes: 

CURT1A | Curvature thylakoid 1A
CURT1B | Curvature thylakoid 1B
CURT1C | Curvature thylakoid 1C
CURT1D | Curvature thylakoid 1D

You are always welcome to provide us new antibody suggestions and be the first to use the produced antibody.

Investigate proteins involved in sucrose metabolism with Agrisera antibodies

Sucrose metabolism plays a crucial role in energy production, carbon partitioning, and sugar transport. It is therefore essential for cellular function, growth and development in plants.

Using Agrisera antibodies, proteins involved in various stages of this process can be tracked. 

Sucrose breakdown involves an enzyme called sucrase (invertase), which cleaves sucrose into the monosaccharides glucose and fructose.

Sucrose biosynthesis occurs primarily in the cytoplasm of photosynthetic cells, and involves the enzymes sucrose phosphate synthase (SPS) and sucrose phosphate phosphatase (SPP). These enzymes are involved in the production of sucrose, which can then be transported to other plant tissues for storage or energy utilization.

Track changes in LHC proteins using most published anti-LHC antibodies

Light-harvesting complexes (LHCs) are essential components of the photosynthetic machinery, allowing photosynthetic organisms to efficiently capture and utilize light energy for the synthesis of organic molecules. The LHCs are integral membrane protein complexes found in the thylakoid membranes of plants, algae, and cyanobacteria. 

Agrisera's LHC antibody collection has been available since the year 2001, with hundreds of scientific references for a wide range of plant and algal species. 
Check out Agrisera's LHC antibodies: 
Lhca1 | Lhca2 | Lhca3 | Lhca4 | Lhca5 | Lhcb1 | Lhcb2 | Lhcb3 | Lhcb4 | Lhcb5 | Lhcb6

Secondary Antibody Guide

Finding the correct secondary antibody can be difficult, so we have put together a Secondary Antibody Guide to help you find exactly what you need. A lot of what you need to know about Agrisera secondary antibodies can be found in their name, but it may be hard to decipher. Our guide walks you through common terms related to secondary antibodies, as well as antibody recommendations and FAQs.

Check out our guide and find answers to questions like:
  • Which secondary antibody to choose for Western blot for protein detection in plant and algal samples?
  • What is the Laser lane, Common filter set, Excitation max and Emission max for fluorescent dyes?
  • What are F(ab)'2 and Fc fragments?
  • What is the meaning of Pre-adsorbed?
And much more...

Shorten the time of Western blot or IL by using directly conjugated primary antibodies

To directly conjugated a primary antibody to an enzyme, like ALP or HRP, or a fluorescent dye, like DyLight®, the antibody must be of the highest purity; purified against the specific antigen. 

Q: What are the benefits of using directly conjugated primary antibodies?

A: The time necessary to complete all steps of a Western blot or immunolocalization protocol, is shortened considerably, as there is no need for secondary antibody incubation and subsequent washes, before the final reaction can be visualized. Potential cross-reactions, which may occur when using secondary antibodies, are also eliminated. Possible sample loss due to washing steps is also reduced. 

Until end of 2024, all directly conjugated Agrisera primary antibodies are discounted by 10%, when applying the discount code Primconj10.
