MaxDiscovery™ ß-Galactosidase ELISA Kit

Product Description
The MaxDiscovery™ ß-Galactosidase ELISA Kit is an enzyme immunoassay that analyzes the quantity of ß-galactosidase in cells, tissues or serum. ß-galactosidase is a hydrolase enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of ß-galactosides into monosaccharides. The ß-galactosidase protein is a large (120 kDa, >1000 amino acids) protein that forms a tetramer. In E. coli the ß-galactosidase protein is encoded by the lacZ gene which is part of the lac operon. The enzyme's function in E. coli is to cleave the disaccharide lactose to form glucose and galactose so they can be used as carbon/energy sources. The lacZ gene from E. coli is one of the most commonly used reporter genes for testing the efficiency of expression vector mediated gene transfer and for studying the regulation of gene promoters. ß-galactosidase is not typically expressed in mammalian cells, however; ß-galactosidase positive staining is a marker for mammalian cellular senescence. ß-galactosidase is a useful reporter gene both in cell culture and in vivo applications due to its ease of detection. Like most ELISA assays, the MaxDiscovery™ ß-Galactosidase ELISA test relies on a Horseradish peroxidase (HRP) conjugated primary antibody and the TMB (3,3´,5,5´-tetramethylbenzidine) substrate. TMB is a chromogen that yields a blue color when oxidized with hydrogen peroxide (catalyzed by HRP) and has a major absorbance at 370 nm and 652 nm. The color then changes to yellow with the addition of acid with maximum absorbance at 450 nm. The relative amount of ß-galactosidase protein in the cells will be directly proportional to the amount of signal that is obtained and thus is an excellent technique for detecting protein expression within cell lines.

Scientists Find Evidence That Cancer Can Arise Changes
Researchers at Rockefeller University have found a mutation that affects the proteins that package DNA without changing the DNA itself can cause a rare form of cancer.
Developing a More Precise Seasonal Flu Vaccine
During the 2014-15 flu season, the poor match between the virus used to make the world’s vaccine stocks and the circulating seasonal virus yielded a vaccine that was less than 20 percent effective.
A Peachy Defense System for Seeds
ETH chemists are developing a new coating method to protect seeds from being eaten by insects. In doing so, they have drawn inspiration from the humble peach and a few of its peers.
Fighting Cancer with Borrowed Immunity
A new step in cancer immunotherapy: researchers from the Netherlands Cancer Institute and University of Oslo/Oslo University Hospital show that even if one's own immune cells cannot recognize and fight their tumors, someone else's immune cells might.
Modified Microalgae Converts Sunlight into Valuable Medicine
A special type of microalgae can soon produce valuable chemicals such as cancer treatment drugs and much more just by harnessing energy from the sun.
Breakthrough Approach to Breast Cancer Treatment
Scripps scientists have designed a drug candidate that decreases growth of breast cancer cells.
Loss Of Y Chromosome Increases Risk Of Alzheimer’s
Men with blood cells that do not carry the Y chromosome are at greater risk of being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. This is in addition to an increased risk of death from other causes, including many cancers. These new findings by researchers at Uppsala University could lead to a simple test to identify those at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
