E. coli STX2B Materials provided
Capture Ab:1.0 mg/mL of mouse anti-E. coli STX2B monoclonal antibody (in PBS, pH 7.4). Dilute to a working concentration of 2 μg/mL in CBS before coating.
Detection Ab:0.25 mg/mL mouse anti-E. coli STX2B monoclonal antibody conjugated to horseradish-peroxidase (HRP) (in PBS, 50 % glycerol, pH 7.4). Dilute to working concentration of 0.5 μg/mL in detection antibody dilution buffer before use.
Standard:Each vial contains 19 ng of recombinant E. coli STX2B. Reconstitute with 1 mL detection antibody dilution buffer. After reconstitution, store at -20℃ to -80℃ in a manual defrost freezer. A seven-point standard curve using 2-fold serial dilutions in sample dilution buffer, and a high standard of 4 ng/mL is recommended.
E. coli STX2B Specificity
E. coli STX2B Sensitivity
The minimum detectable dose of Enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC) STX2B was determined to be approximately 62.5 pg/ml. This is defined as at least three times standard deviations above the mean optical density of 10 replicates of the zero standard.
E. coli STX2B Principle of the product
The Enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC) STX2B ELISA Pair Set is for the quantitative determination of Enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC) STX2B.
This ELISA Pair Set contains the basic components required for the development of sandwich ELISAs.
The Sino Biological ELISA Pair Set is a solid phase sandwich ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay). It utilizes a monoclonal antibody specific for STX2B coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are added to the wells, and any STX2B present binds to the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and a horseradish peroxidase conjugated mouse anti-STX2B monoclonal antibody is then added, producing an antibody-antigen-antibody "sandwich". The wells are again washed and TMB substrate solution is loaded, which produces color in proportion to the amount of STX2B present in the sample. To end the enzyme reaction, the stop solution is added and absorbances of the microwell are read at 450 nm.
E. coli STX2B Storage
Capture Antibody: Aliquot and store at -20℃ to -80℃ for up to 6 months from date of receipt. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Detection Antibody: Protect it from prolonged exposure to light. Aliquot and store at -20℃ to -80℃ and for up to 6 months from date of receipt. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Standard: Store lyophilized Standard at -20℃ to -80℃ for up to 6 months from date of receipt. Aliquot and store the reconstituted Standard at -80℃ for up to 1 month. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
stx2B / Shiga toxin II subunit B Background

E. Coli STX2B is a subunit of Stx2. Stx2, together with Stx1, formed a family of related toxins which are known as shiga toxins. Shiga toxins are mainly produced by the bacteria S. dysenteriae and the Shigatoxigenic group of Escherichia coli, which includes serotypes O157:H7, O104:H4, and other enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC). A total of 3222 outbreak cases (including 39 deaths) have been reported in northern Germany in May through June 2011. The outbreak strain was typed as an enteroaggregative Shiga-toxin–producing E. coli O104:H4, producing extended-spectrum beta-lactamase. The toxin has two subunits—A and B. E. Coli STX2B is the B subunit. It is a pentamer that binds to specific glycolipids on the host cell, specifically globotriaosylceramide. Following this, the A subunit is internalised and cleaved into two parts. Stx2 has been found to be approximately 400 times more toxic (as quantified by LD50 in mice) than Stx-1. The Stx1 and Stx2 B subunits form a pentameric structure that binds to globotriaosylceramidereceptors on eukaryotic cells and promotes endocytosis
