The use of global antibodies
Global antibodies reliably measure the levels of key proteins even in uncharacterized species or mixed communities.
The benefit of global antibodies
Global antibodies are raised against peptides conserved in the target proteins across a range of species. This intelligent design generates antibodies with quantitative target recognition across a defined range of species.
The strength of global antibodies
Global quantitation standards allow accurate measurement of levels of the target protein from any species within the defined taxonomic range because their target recognition region is precisely the same. Environmental Proteomics has created several global antibodies for the most commonly studied photosynthetic proteins along with the companion protein standards.
