Product Description
Acetylated BSA is chemically prepared through acetylation of the epsilon amino group of BSA lysine residues with activated acetic acid. The acetylated BSA is well recognized by anti-acetylated lysine antibodies.
 
Western blot analysis of acetylated BSA. A to F, different quantity of acetylated BSA (ng).
 
 
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 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.
Storage & Stability
Product is stable for several weeks at 4°C. For extended storage, aliquot content and store product at -20°C. Avoid cycles of freezing and thawing. Expiration date is one year from date of shipping if stored properly.
