Description

Background

Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) is used for various biochemical applications including ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay), high content screening assays, western blotting, FACS Buffer and immunohistochemistry. BSA as a blocking reagent is particularly useful with casein-sensitive antibodies, such as phospho-specific antibodies. Also used as a nutrient in cell and microbial culture. In restriction digests, BSA is used to stabilize some enzymes during digestion of DNA and to prevent adhesion of the enzyme to reaction tubes and other vessels. Bovine Serum Albumin can also be used to determine the quantity of other proteins, by comparing an unknown quantity of protein to known amounts of BSA.

Application Note

Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) is suitable for use in protease sensitive assays such as RIA, EIA and nucleic acid hybridization, use as a stabilizing agent for proteins and enzymes including dilute solutions of antibody, use as a blocking agent to reduce non-specific binding.

Purity/Specificity

This product was prepared from normal serum by a multi-step process which includes delipidation, salt fractionation and selective precipitation followed by extensive dialysis against the buffer stated above.   Assay by immunoelectrophoresis resulted in a single precipitin arc against anti-Bovine Albumin and anti-Bovine Serum.
