Product information "Glutathione S Transferase, Western Blot Positive Control (GST)"
Expression of genes in E. coli or yeast or baculovirus offers a convenient system to produce large amounts of recombinant proteins that may otherwise be difficult to isolate from natural cells and tissues. Very often antibodies to these newly identified proteins are not available to study its biochemical properties, monitor protein expression, and purification. In order to circumvent this problem, short pieces of well-defined peptides (Poly-His, Flag-epitope or c-myc epitope or HA-tag) or small proteins (bacterial GST, MBP, Thioredoxin, b-Galactosidase, VSV-Glycoprotein etc) are often cloned along with the target gene. Proteins are expressed as fusion proteins. Antibodies to these fusion-tags are already available to monitor fusion protein expression and purification. Therefore, fusion-tags serve as universal tags much like secondary antibodies. Many tags have their own characteristics. Poly-His-fusion proteins (6 x His) can bind to Nickel-Sepharose or Nickel-HRP. GST-fusion proteins can bind to glutathione-Sepharose. Therefore, a high degree of purification of fusion protein can be achieved in just one affinity purification step. Purity of fusion proteins can be followed by Tag-antibodies. Very often, fusion proteins are directly injected into animals to generate antibodies. Some fusion tags can be removed later by treatment with enzymes to generate tag-free recombinant proteins. Source: Bacterial GST (Schistosoma japonicum, ~27kD) was expressed in E. coli, Applications: Suitable for Western Blot as a protein control. Other applications not tested. Recommended Dilutions: Western Blot: Neat. Heat once and load 10ul/lane and visualize with appropriate antibodies., Optimal dilution to be determined by the researcher. Storage and Stability: May be stored at 4°C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for 6 months after receipt at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
