CTBS Antibody (RF-18) is a high quality monoclonal CTBS antibody (also designated CTBS antibody) suitable for the detection of the CTBS protein of human origin. CTBS Antibody (RF-18) is available as the non-conjugated anti-CTBS antibody. CTBS (di-N-acetylchitobiase), also known as CTB (chitobiase), is an evolutionarily conserved member of the glycosyl hydrolase 18 family of proteins. Localizing to the lysosome, CTBS plays a role in the degradation of asparagine-linked (Asn-linked) glycoproteins. Glycoproteins are translocated to lysosomes via endocytosis or autophagy where they are broken down by proteases and glycosidases. The catabolism of glycoproteins is an important step in the regular turnover of cellular contents and in maintaining the homeostasis of glycosylation. CTBS functions as a glycosidase that cleaves the reducing end GlcNAc from the core chitobiase unit of oligosaccharides. Before this reaction can occur, AGA (the lysosomal glycosylasparaginase) must first remove the Asn from the Asn-linked glycoprotein to expose the reducing end GlcNAc, thereby allowing CTBS to access the exposed moiety.

For Western Blot, is it recommended to use denatured or non-denatured conditions with CTBS (RF-18): sc-100489 antibody?
Asked by: DefinitelyNotMatt
Thank you for your question. We recommend this antibody for use in denatured Western Blot conditions. It has not been validated for use in non-denatured conditions. Please contact our Technical Service Department for further details or inquiries.
