Background of Beta-galactosidase tag antibody

Beta-galactosidase is coded by a gene (lac z) in the lac operon of Escherichia coli. It is a metalloenzyme that splits lactose into glucose and galactose. It hydrolyzes terminal, non-reducing beta-D-galactose residues in beta-D-galactosides.
Activation by cations seems to be substrate dependent. K+, Na+, NH4+, Rb+, Cs+ and Mn++ all activate enzyme activity based upon the substrate used.

Beta-galactosidase tag antibody

Figure 1. Western blotting using Fluorescein conjugated anti-Beta-galactosidase antibody shows a band at ~117 kDa (lanes 1 - 3) corresponding to 60 ng, 30 ng and 15 ng, respectively of b-Gal present in partially purified preparations (arrowhead). Lane 4 shows no cross reactivity with proteins present in a non-specific control E. coli lysate. Proteins were  resolved on a 4-20% Tris-glycine gel by SDS-PAGE and transferred to Nitrocellulose and blocking using blocking buffer for fluorescent Western blotting. The membrane was probed with Fluorescein conjugated anti-Beta-galactosidase (Cat.-No. R1064F) diluted to 1/10,000. Reaction occurred for 2 hours at room temperature. Molecular weight estimation was made by comparison to a prestained MW marker in lane M. Fluorescence image was captured using the VersaDoc® Imaging System. Other detection systems will yield similar results. Rabbit Serum E. coli C, E, P, WB
