  • 产品概述

    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 promoters of genes. The LacZ gene encodes the enzyme ß-galactosidase, which is very stable, resistant to proteolytic degradation, can utilize a variety of substrates and can be easily assayed in situ.

    Abcam's beta Galactosidase Detection Kit (ab102534) utilizes X-gal as the substrate for ß-galactosidase.

  • 说明

    This kit has been optimized for transfected cells. If you want to detect senescence, we recommend using Senescence Detection Kit (ab65351).

    Beta galactosidase is a hydrolase enzyme that cleaves beta-linked terminal galactosyl residues from gangliosides, glycoproteins, and glycosaminoglycans. Beta galactosidase is an essential enzyme in the human body. Deficiencies in the protein can result in galactosialidosis or Morquio B syndrome. Senescent cells display senescence-associated expression of beta galactosidase activity.

The staining procedure will remain the same for suspension cells except the cells would have to be in a micro-centrifuge tube while the washing (add PBS, spin down, remove buffer) and incubation steps are performed. Once done, the cells can be aliquote...

The protocol calls for fixing tissues for a short period of time (10 - 15 min at room temperature). Stored samples may not have enough enzymatic activity to do this assay. Residual enzymatic activity also depends on how high the formalin concentration ...

You can keep both reagents at 37°C until the precipitate dissolves.

Thank you for your inquiry.

I can confirm that we have optimized ab102534 for cells.

We believe it is possible to use this kit with frozen tissues, I am sorry to confirm that we do not know what optimizations will be necessary.

Thank you for contacting us.

I have obtained the following information from the lab:

1) ab102534 cannot be used for senescence assay.
ab65351 is used to detect senescence-associated expression of β-galactosidase (SA-&beta...
