Application Abreviews Notes
  • Application notes
    AP: 1/10.
    ELISA: 1/10.
    IHC-Fr: 1/10.
    WB: 1/10. The beta-glucuronidase is in its native form a tetramer of MW 280 kDa. Furthermore it can be glycosylated.

    Not yet tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • Function
      Plays an important role in the degradation of dermatan and keratan sulfates.
    • Involvement in disease
      Defects in GUSB are the cause of mucopolysaccharidosis type 7 (MPS7) [MIM:253220]; also known as Sly syndrome. MPS7 is an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disease characterized by inability to degrade glucuronic acid-containing glycosaminoglycans. The phenotype is highly variable, ranging from severe lethal hydrops fetalis to mild forms with survival into adulthood. Most patients with the intermediate phenotype show hepatomegaly, skeletal anomalies, coarse facies, and variable degrees of mental impairment.
      Note=Mucopolysaccharidosis type 7 is associated with non-immune hydrops fetalis, a generalized edema of the fetus with fluid accumulation in the body cavities due to non-immune causes. Non-immune hydrops fetalis is not a diagnosis in itself but a symptom, a feature of many genetic disorders, and the end-stage of a wide variety of disorders.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the glycosyl hydrolase 2 family.
    • Post-translational
      N-linked glycosylated with 3 to 4 oligosaccharide chains.

    The antibody binds to circulating B-glucuronidase.

    Thank you for your patience. I have only just heard back from the antibody's originator. The protein in its native format is a tetramer of approximately 280 kDa. The monomer format is approximately 74 kD. This can deviate a little bit on the gel depend...

    The MW of this antibody is 150 kD. This antibody reacts in WB with a single protein of approximately 280 kDa.

    Cross reactivity with E.coli beta glucuronidase has not been tested, but as the antibody does not cross react with the rat enzyme I am doubtful that it will work with a bacterial enzyme.

    The antibody will not cross-react with rat, so we do not think that it is likely to cross react with mouse.

    It ahs been tested at 1 in 10 but as you say, this is high and probably wasteful. We would therfore recommend that you titrate the antibody at 1 in 10, 1 in 50, 1 in 100 and 1 in 500 in your particular application.
