The monoclonal antibody 900 recognizes elongation factor Tu (EF-Tu), a 43 kDa multifunctional protein present in Escherichia coli. EF-Tu is one of the most abundant proteins present in prokaryotes, representing about 5 % of the total cellular protein of E. coli. During protein biosynthesis, the elongation process, EF-Tu catalyzes the binding of each aminoacyl-tRNA to the ribosome. It also interacts with several macromolecules and guanine nucleotides, including EF-Ts, GDP, GTP, and some ribosomal proteins. Monoclonal antibody 900 recognizes EF-Tu in organisms belonging to bacterial and archaeal domains, yet no organisms from the eukaryotic domain. The panbacterial distribution of EF-Tu, which is present in large amounts in every prokaryotic cell, renders this protein a good candidate for diagnostic purposes. The highly conserved epitope recognized by monoclonal antibody 900 is located at the very end of the N-terminus of the EF-Tu molecule (SKEKFE).

Immuno assays, Immuno fluorescence, Western blot

For Western blotting, dilutions to be used depend on detection system applied. It is recommended that users test the reagent and determine their own optimal dilutions. The typical starting working dilution is 1:50.

  • New Human Complement Pathway Assays
    We are very proud of our newly developed human classical and alternative complement pathway assays. They are produced in response to a growing demand for quantitative investigation of complement inhibitors or regulators at lower sample dilutions. This development aims to address the issue of false negative results, enabling more accurate and reliable analysis of complement… Read more: New Human Complement Pathway Assays
  • Navigating the pitfalls in complement analysis
    Our colleague Erik Toonen shared his experience on how to analyze complement at the Complement-based Drug Development Summit in Boston in September 11-13th, 2023. He showed valuable insights on analyzing complements. For accurate complement analysis, it is important that not only the correct technique is used but also that pre-analytical sample handling is performed in… Read more: Navigating the pitfalls in complement analysis
  • NEW Human C3d ELISA
    We are happy to introduce our new ELISA (cat.# HK3017) designed to detect human C3d. What sets this assay apart is its utilization of a distinctive neo-epitope capture antibody that selectively targets a specific C3d region of the alpha chain, which is not available in other C3 variants. This way it specifically distinguishes C3d from native C3… Read more: NEW Human C3d ELISA
