Protein Name & Synonyms:
E. coli J5 LPS
ELISA, Immunofluorescence, Western Blotting
This product is specific for E. coli J5 LPS. The J5 mutant of E. coli 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).
This product has also been found to react with K. pneumoniae, S. sonnei and S. typhimurium.
Store at +4 °C or at -20 °C if preferred.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
If stored in this manner, this product is stable for 18 months after receipt.
