Dip and Read Anti-Penta-HIS (HIS1K) Biosensors

For Label-Free Quantitation and Kinetic Analysis of His-Tagged Recombinant Proteins

The polyhistidine protein tag (His-tag), commonly engineered into proteins during cloning, can be used to facilitate recombinant protein purification and detection by exploiting the chelating properties of histidine to an immobilized metal. The Anti-Penta-HIS (HIS1K) Biosensor consists of high affinity, high specificity Penta-His antibody from Qiagen pre-immobilized on a fiber optic biosensor. In conjunction with the Octet® and BLItz® systems, the HIS1K Biosensor provides a rapid and label-free method for His-tagged protein quantitation and kinetic characterization. The high specificity of the antibody-based biosensor enables the direct capture and quantitation of His-tagged proteins even in crude cell lysates or supernatants.

HIS1K kinetic Analysis

Figure 2: Kinetic analysis of the interaction between ligand His-tagged Rat C-Reactive Protein (24 kDa) and analyte Mouse Anti-Rat C-Reactive Protein (150 kDa). 10X Kinetics Buffer was used as the matrix throughout and the assay temperature was 30°C. Data were processed and fitted using a 1:1 binding model (curve fit lines in red).
