Ecoli lysate containing recombinant TEV protease was loaded on to a 4-20% gradient gel for separation. After electrophoresis, the gel was blocked with 1% BSA (p/n BSA-30) in TBS for 30min at ambient. The membrane was probed with the primary antibody at a 1:1,000 dilution in 1%BSA/TBS  overnight at 4° C. For detection HRP conjugated Gt-a-Rabbit IgG (p/n 611-103-122) was used at a 1:40,000 dilution for 30 min at ambient and data generated with FemtoMax™ enhanced chemiluminescent reagent (p/n FEMTOMAX-100). Images were captured using BioRad Versadoc 4000MP Imaging System.

TEV Protease Antibody Description

TEV protease, encoded by the Tobacco Etch Virus (TEV), is a 27 kDa catalytic domain of the Nuclear Inclusion a (NIa) protein encoded by the virus (TEV). It is widely used for cleaving fusion proteins because of its sequence specificity. It recognizes a linear epitope of the general form E-Xaa-Xaa-Y-Xaa-Q-(G/S). Cleavage occurs between Q and G or Q and S. The structure of TEV protease is similar to that of of the serine protease family. Like serine proteases, TEV protease utilizes a catalytic triad of residues to hydrolyze peptide bonds. The distinguishing feature of TEV protease, however, is that instead of the serine nucleophile in the triad Ser-Asp-His, there is a cysteine, which may explain the resistance of TEV protease to protease inhibitors which are commonly used. The strain used is the autoinactivation-resistant mutant S219V. The catalytic activity of the S219V mutant is approximately 2 fold greater than that of the wild-type protease.

This protein-A purified antibody was prepared from whole rabbit serum produced by repeated immunizations with recombinant MBP-and-poly-His-tagged autoinactivation-resistant mutant TEV Protease.
Immunogen Type
Recombinant Protein
Storage Condition
Store vial at -20° C prior to opening. Aliquot contents and freeze at -20° C or below for extended storage. Avoid cycles of freezing and thawing. Centrifuge product if not completely clear after standing at room temperature. This product is stable for several weeks at 4° C as an undiluted liquid. Dilute only prior to immediate use.
Application Note
This protein A purified antibody has been tested for use in western blotting.  Specific conditions for reactivity should be optimized by the end user.  Expect a band approximately 27 kDa in size corresponding to TEV by western blotting in the appropriate cell lysate or extract. Anti-TEV protease may be useful to detect residual TEV protease in preparations of recombinant proteins in which that protease may interfere with downstream manipulations.
This product was protein-A purified and cross-adsorbed against MBP from monospecific antiserum by chromatography. Assay by western blot showed no reactivity to MBP.
