  • RelevanceAnthrax toxins are composed of three distinct proteins, a protective antigen (PA), a lethal factor (LF) and an edema factor (EF). None of these proteins are toxic by themselves and several studies indicate that the anthrax toxin has the familiar A-B enzymatic binding structure, with PA acting as the binding domain and EF and/or LF acting as the active fragments.

Thank you for contacting Abcam regarding ab13808.

Regarding the production of this antibody, the immunogen is a synthetic peptide comprised of amino acids 240-254 of the Anthrax PA protein. No further details are available at this time. Read More

Thank you for contacting us. PA is cleaved from the 83 kDa form to the 63 kDa form at amino acids 164-167. Thus the antibody (made against amino acids 250-250) should recognize both the 83 kDa and 63 kDa PA forms, but not the 20 kDa cleavage fragment. ...
