Detection of Human  beta-1,3-Glucuronyltransferase 1/B3GAT1 antibody by Western Blot.

Detection of Human beta‑1,3‑Glucuronyltransferase 1/B3GAT1 by Western Blot.

Western blot shows lysates of human cerebellum tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human beta-1,3-Glucuronyltransferase 1/B3GAT1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB85602) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for beta-1,3-Glucuronyltransferase 1/B3GAT1 at approximately 38 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Detection of Mouse and Rat beta‑1,3‑Glucuronyltransferase 1/B3GAT1 by Simple WesternTM.

Simple Western lane view shows lysates of mouse brain tissue and rat brain tissue, loaded at 0.2 mg/mL. A specific band was detected for beta‑1,3‑Glucuronyltransferase 1/B3GAT1 at approximately 48 kDa (as indicated) using 20 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human beta‑1,3‑Glucuronyltransferase 1/B3GAT1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB85602) . This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using the 12-230 kDa separation system.

beta‑1,3‑Glucuronyltransferase 1/B3GAT1 in Human Brain.

beta-1,3-Glucuronyltransferase 1/B3GAT1 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human brain (hippocampus) using Mouse Anti-Human beta-1,3-Glucuronyltransferase 1/B3GAT1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB85602) at 5 µg/mL for 1 hour at room temperature followed by incubation with the Anti-Mouse IgG VisUCyte™ HRP Polymer Antibody (Catalog # VC001). Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using DAB (brown) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to neuronal cell bodies.

Background: beta-1,3-Glucuronyltransferase 1/B3GAT1

B3GAT1 is a key enzyme involved in human natural killer1 (HNK1) epitope synthesis. It adds a glucuronic residue to the terminal lactosamine residue (Gal beta14GlcNAc) of a glycoprotein or glycolipid, which can be further sulfated to become the HNK1 epitope, a unique trisaccharide structure, HSO3-3GlcA beta1-3Gal beta1-4GlcNAc (1, 2). The enzyme activity was found to be enhanced in the presence of sphingomyelin and phosphatidylinositol (3). The HNK1 carbohydrate epitope is characteristically expressed on a series of cell adhesion molecules in addition to some glycolipids in the extracellular matrix and on the cell surface in the nervous system, where it is involved in cell-cell and cell-substratum interaction and recognition during the development of the nervous system (4). Like most known glycosyltransferases, B3GAT1 is a type II Golgi-resident transmembrane protein with a short N-terminal cytoplasmic domain and a single pass transmembrane domain followed by an enzymatic domain in the lumen of Golgi apparatus. The enzyme activity was assayed using a phosphatase-coupled method (5).
