Product Overview:
Recombinant Botulinum Neurotoxin Type A Light Chain(1-429 aa) fused with GST tag was expressed in E. coli.
The protein was recombinantly expressed in E. coli and purified using affinity and ion exchange chromatography. The GST affinity tag has been retained on this protein.

C. botulinum
Tag :
Each vial of light chain from Botulinum neurotoxin type A contains 15 ug of protein lyophilized with 180 ul of 20 mM HEPES, pH 7.4, 1.25 % lactose. The pH 7.4 HEPES buffer was obtained by titrating the free acid form of HEPES with the potassium salt form of HEPES. This minimizes the sodium and chloride concentrations present with the toxin. In order to ensure stability during storage and recovery of the protein 0.05% TWEEN-20 or 1 mg/ml BSA must be included in your reconstitution buffer.
The recombinant Light Chain- GST fusion has been tested for activity in a FRET based assay. A standard curve was generated using SNAPtide Unquenched Calibration Peptide. When using SNAPtide substrate, cleavage can be easily detected at 5 nanomolar concentration of protein.
Molecular Mass:
The light chain A fragment contains amino acids 1-429 of the full length Botulinum Neurotoxin Type A for a molecular weight of approximately 50 kDa. The GST tag is 26 kDa. The total molecular weight of the fusion protein based on sequence is 76.389 kDa.
The light chain of Botulinum Neurotoxin is non-toxic and unable to penetrate cells in the absence of the heavy chain. The expression and purification of light chain from a recombinant setting ensures there is no possible contamination with heavy chain or full length intact toxin.
This product is supplied as a lyophilized powder which has been stoppered under vacuum. Reconstitution of the powder should be done with syringe through the rubber stopper to avoid any loss of material. Store lyophilized vials at 4 centigrade. Once dissolved, aliquot and store at -20 centigrade. Refrain from multiple freeze/thaw cycles.
