Rabbit anti beta-galactosidase polyclonal antibody detects beta-galactosidase, an inducible enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of lactose and other beta-galactosides into monosaccharides.
Beta-galactosidase is a product of the LacZ operon, and is a homo-tetrameric protein consisting of four identical subunits of approximately 116 kDa each. beta-galactosidase is commonly used as a reporter gene in molecular biology to assess the efficiency of transfection.
