Outer Surface Protein C, or OspC, is a 20.7 kDa immunogenic protein on the outer surface of the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi. Its function is not known, but it is located with lipid-anchoring sites on the outer cell membrane. Lyme disease proteins are ideal for researchers interested in immunology, neurology, rheumatology, coinfections, autoimmune, and neurodegenerative diseases.

Target Details

ospC, BB_B19  - View All ospC, BB_B19 Products
OspC is a fusion protein with an MBP tag and was expressed in E. coli. Analysis by SDS-PAGE resulted in a pattern consistent with purified OspC and was estimated to be greater than 90% pure.

Application Details

OspC is suitable as a control in immunological assays. Specific conditions for reactivity should be optimized by the end user. Expect a band at 63.1 kDa for OspC-MBP, (20.7 kDa for OspC and 42.4 for MBP) in size corresponding to OspC by Western blotting in the appropriate cell lysate or extract. Outer Surface Protein C has been tested in SDS-page and western blot.
