Overview

  • Product name

    Anti-E. coli J5 LPS antibody
  • Description

    Sheep polyclonal to E. coli J5 LPS
  • Host species

    Sheep
  • Specificity

    ab54089 recognises the J5 mutant of E. coli 0:111 which lacks the enzyme uridine diphosphate glucose 4-epimerase and therefore produces an incomplete LPS, deficient in galactose and all the sugars distal to the central polymers. The 55 mutant has no O-specific chains and its endotoxin remains as the core LPS containing lipid A, N acetyl glucosamine, 2-keto-3-deoxyoctonate, heptose and glucose (a composition similar to that of the Rc strains of Salmonella).

Answer

Thank you for your enquiry. I have contacted the originator of this LPS antibody. They have confirmed it has been tested successfully with rough LPS. Unfortunately, it has not been tested on smooth LPS so we are unable to state whether or not it will detect smooth LPS. I hope this information is helpful to you. Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
