  • Name: Anti-BirA [6C4c7]
  • Alternate name: BirA antibody, bioR antibody, dhbB antibody, JW3941 antibody
  • Clone: 6C4c7
  • Class: Monoclonal
  • Conjugation: Unconjugated
  • Molecular weight: 35 kDa
  • Strain: C57BL/6
  • Reactivity: E.coli
  • Host: Mouse
  • Application: IF ; WB
  • Description: Monoclonal antibody to investigate the E.coli BirA protein. Background and Research Application E.coli BirA is a well-characterized multifunctional protein that either catalyses the transfer of biotin to biotin carboxyl carrier protein (BCCP), an acetyl-CoA carboxylase subunit or, alternatively, binds to the biotin operator resulting in transcriptional repression of the biotin operon. This protein also activates biotin to form biotinyl-5'-adenylate and transfers the biotin moiety to biotin-accepting proteins. A mutant BirA (R118G) shows loss of DNA binding ability and promiscuity of substrate biotinylation. These properties of BirA R118G were used to develop an in vivo proximity labelling technique that identifies potential interacting proteins (BioID). In the BioID method, a protein of interest is tagged with BirA R118G and expressed in live cells. Addition of the biotin to the culture medium results in biotinylation of proteins in vicinity of the bait. The biotinylated proteins can then be affinity purified with biotin binding proteins such as streptavidin or avidin even under harsh denaturing conditions and subsequently identified by mass spectrometry or immunoblot analysis.
