Human anti GST antibody, clone 2021 detects glutathione-S-transferase (GST), a family of cytosolic dimeric isoenzymes that play an important role in detoxification by catalyzing the conjugation of reduced glutathione to a myriad of hydrophobic and electrophilic compounds. GSTs may also bind toxins and function as transport proteins.
Mammalian GSTs are 45–55kDa in size and are assigned to at least four generic classes: Alpha, Mu , Pi and Theta. The amino acid sequence GST is highly conserved in most organisms, including mammals.
GST is a commonly used tag in protein expression systems.
A bivalent human recombinant Fab selected from the HuCAL® GOLD phage display library. Expressed in E. coli and purified using metal chelate affinity chromatography. This Fab fragment is bivalent by dimerization of the bacterial alkaline phosphatase fusion protein. The antibody is tagged with a DYKDDDDK tag and a HIS-tag (HHHHHH) at the C-terminus of the antibody heavy chain.
Metal chelate affinity chromatography.
