Rabbit Anti-Rubisco Antibody
This antibody is especially suitable for quantifying of Rubisco in plant and algal samples. Rubisco (Ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase) catalyzes the rate-limiting step of CO2 fixation in photosynthetic organisms. It is demonstrably homologous from purple bacteria to flowering plants and consistsÃ¥ÃŠfoÃ¥ÃŠtwo protein subunits, each present in 8 copies. In plants and green algae, the large subunit (~55 kDa) is coded by theÃ¥ÃŠchloroplasÃ¥ÃŠrbcL gene, and the small subunit (15 kDa) is coded by a family of nuclear rbcS genes.
