Rabbit
Formulation
5 mg/mL in PBS
Acetylation
Approximately 20-30 acetyl groups/BSA
Applications
Positive control and competitive inhibitor for anti-acetylated lysine antibodies
Scientific Description
BSA is a protein with a molecular weight of 66,430 Da, [1] and 583 amino acid residues. Because BSA is highly soluble in water, it is used as a diluting or blocking agent for many techniques such as Western blots, ELISAs and immunohistochemistry.
