Overview

  • Product name
    E. coli Positive Control (Escherichia coli ) Whole Cell Lysate - expressing 6X His tag protein
  • General notes


    This lysate can be used as a positive control for Western blots using lysates containing 6X-His tagged proteins.

  • Tested applications
    Suitable for: WBmore details

Properties

  • Form
    Lyophilised:After the lyophilised pellet is dissolved in 250 ul SDS-gel sample buffer (1 mg/ml protein lysate) it can be used direct for sample loading and then stored at –20°C. The sample can be reused several times
  • Storage instructions
    Store at +4°C short term (1-2 weeks). Aliquot and store at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid repeated freeze / thaw cycles.
  • Concentration information loading...
  • Lysate notes

    The cell lysate was prepared from E.coli (Tuner [De3]) expressing a 14.2 kDa protein containing a C-terminal 6xHis tag.

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab2431 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use at an assay dependent dilution. This E. coli (strain BL21)lysate contains a recombinant C-terminal 6x-His tagged protein of 17 kDa. The his-tagged protein is monomeric and will be detected under reducing and non-reducing conditions. Use 5-20 µg per lane of a mini-gel at 12-15 % SDS-PAGE. After the lyophilised pellet is dissolved in 250 ul SDS-gel sample buffer (1 mg/ml protein lysate) it can be used direct for sample loading and than stored at -20°C. The sample can be reused several times.

Question
Answer

The E. coli was cultured using a standard protocol and harvested by centrifugation. The pellet was resuspended in 50mM Tris, 10mM EDTA, pH8.0, treated with ultrasonic sound, centrifuged and the supernatant was finally filtered (0.22µm).

Question
Answer

Je peux vous confirmer que les cellules E. coli du produit ab2431 ont été préparé dans un tampon contenant 50mM Tris, 10mM EDTA, pH 8.0 et lysé par sonification ensuite. Le lysat était ensuite aliquoté et lyophilisé.

Answer

Thank you for your inquiry. We use the following 4X sample buffer: 4 mL mQ H2O 1 mL 0.5M Tris-Cl, pH 6.8 0.8 mL Glycerol 1.6 mL 10% SDS (w/v) 0.2 mL Bromphenol blue + 400µl Mercaptoethanol (for reduced gels) If you reconstitute the lysate directly in sample buffer we would recommend to use 1X. The total protein lysate is suggested to use as a standard or positive control when expressing 6H-tagged proteins in E. coli. When analyzing the total protein lysate on a gel by Western blotting a prominent band of 17 kDa will interact with anti-his-tag antibodies. The His-tagged protein is monomeric and will be detected under reducing and non-reducing conditions. It is recommended to use 5 mg – 20 mg protein lysate per lane for SDS-PAGE. After the lyophilized pellet is dissolved in 250 µl SDS-gel sample buffer (1 mg/ml protein lysate) it can be used direct for sample loading and then stored at –20°C. The sample can be reused several times..

Answer

The E. coli lysate containing the his-tag protein is a whole bacterial cell pellet lysate. The amount of bands detected with a his-tag antibody depends on the quality of the his-tag antibody and is therefore antibody dependent.
