Anti-Phytochelatin Synthase [mAbPS1, 1.2E12.G5.C9] Antibody

This mouse IgG2a monoclonal antibody was generated against synthetic peptide and recognizes plants and fission yeast (Schizosaccharomyces pombe) phytochelatin synthetase (PS), N-MAP.

Highlights:

  • Recognizes plants and fission yeast (Schizosaccharomyces pombe) phytochelatin synthetase (PS), N-MAP SEQ: NIVKRAVPELLRGMTMATPNIGLIKNKVV
  • Useful for the study of synthesis of, and development of, phytochelatins and related metabolic pathways, as well as in the development of phytoremediation tools, and in the study of metal toxicity in plants and closely related organisms
  • Suitable for Immunohistochemistry, ELISA and Western Blot applications

Together with gamma –glutamyl Cys sythetase (γ-ECS) and glutathione synthetase, phytochelatin synthetase (PS), is an enzyme involved in, and required for, synthetizing phytochelatins (PC). In certain plants, deficiency of such enzymes leads to low tolerance to metal contamination while mutants over-expressing them are highly tolerant to metal contamination and may be used in phyto-remediation of heavy metals. Monoclonal antibodies to PC were developed using N-terminal peptides synthesized as MAPs. N-terminal MAP was 29 amino acids long. They are useful for the study of synthesis and development of phytochelatins and related metabolic pathways, as well as in the development of phtoremediation tools and in the study of metal toxicity in plants and closely related organisms.
