Target

  • Relevance
    The beta lactam antibiotics (penicillins and cephalosporins) are the most frequently used antimicrobial agents. All of the beta lactams are structurally related through the presence of a core beta lactam ring. Bacterial resistance to beta lactams continues to increase, primarily due to the production of beta lactamases. Beta lactamases catalyze the hydrolysis of the beta lactam bond, which destroys antibacterial activity. Bacteria that produce TEM type or SHV type beta lactamases have point mutations in structural genes that have extended the substrate specificity of these beta lactamases. As a result, many of the beta lactamase producing Gram negative pathogens have become multidrug resistant.

Customer reviews and Q&As

Thank you for your enquiry.

ab12251 and ab12252 were derived from mice that were immunized with the full-length beta lactamse. The immunogen of ab12251 was recombinant TEM-1 beta-lactamase while ab12252 was native Type IV beta-lactamase from ...

Thank you for contacting us.

ab12251's immunogen is 5'-His-tagged E.coli TEM-1 beta lactamase therefore this antibody is specific to TEM-1 beta lactamases. I have compared the sequence similarity between TEM-1 beta lactamase and ab104926 and ...

Thank you for contacting us on Friday.

As discussed over the phone, ab12251 and ab97678 are both mouse monoclonals against beta-lactamase. Whilst I cannot find any reference of ab97678 being used in detecting beta-galctosidase expressed in Le...

Thank you for contacting us. The lactamases appear to be well-conserved, and the antibodies ab97678 and ab12251 are likely to react with a variety of them. They may possibly recognize your sequence but the epitopes they recognize have not been mappe...

To the best of our knowledge, this antibody recognizes all TEM-type beta lactamases. Data is limited to our own work with TEM-1 and reports from customers who have worked with various strains of E. coli. To date, we have not been informed by any of o...
