Protein Name & Synonyms:
E. coli J5 LPS
This product recognizes the J5 mutant of E. coli 0:111 which 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).
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.
