Active E. coli Beta Glucuronidase (GUS) full length protein
Activity: >10,000,000 units/g protein. This enzyme does not hydrolyze alpha-glucuronides or beta-glucosides. This preparation is essentially free of sulfatase activity.
Preservative: None Constituents: Polyethylene glycol (as stabilizer), 10mM Potassium phosphate, 1mM EDTA, 1mM DTT
Shipped at 4°C. Upon delivery aliquot and store at -20°C. Avoid freeze/thaw cycles.
Reconstitute with 75mM phosphate buffer, pH 6.8, to give a 5mg/ml solution. This solution will be clear to slightly hazy but is still active regardless.
Escherichia coli; commonly abbreviated E. coli) is a gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacterium of the genus Escherichia that is commonly found in the lower intestine of warm-blooded organisms (endotherms). Most E. coli strains are harml
Reporter genes are widely used for studying the expression of foreign genes in transformed plants tissues. Using appropriate promoter-reporter gene constructs, this technique allows an independent verification of the transformed status of tissues growing on media containing selective antibiotics or herbicides. In addition, it serves as a principal means to follow gene transfer and monitor genetic transformation of plant species. Encoded by the E. coli GUS gene (also referred to as uidA), GUS protein is a hydrolase that catalyses the cleavage of a variety of beta-glucuronide derivatives available for colorimetric, fluorimetric and histochemical assays. Several features make the gus gene superior as a reporter gene for plant studies and in the production of genetically engineered crops.
