DbpB Antibody Description

Decorin-binding protein B, or DbpB, binds to decorin, which may mediate the adherence of B.burgdorferi to collagen fibers in skin and other tissues. Spirochetal surface adhesions mediate attachment to decorin, a major component of the host extracellular matrix enabling bacteria to colonize in mammalian tissues. The spirochete migrates from the tick midgut during feeding to its salivary glands and are thus transmitted to the mammal host. This transition may be facilitated by changes in expression of some B. burgdorferi genes. It is believed that expression of the various proteins associated with the spirochete may be regulated by the changes in tick life cycle, changes in conditions during tick feeding (such as temperature, pH, and nutrients) and/or in coordination with the course of infection of the mammal host. Borrelia burgdorferi can colonize multiple tissues, and is capable of attachment to diverse cell types. The expression of decorin-binding protein (Dbp) A and/or DbpB, two B. burgdorferi surface proteins that bind GAGs, is sufficient to convert a high-passage nonadherent B. burgdorferi strain into one that efficiently binds 293 epithelial cells.
Decorin-binding protein B, Borrelia burgdorferi DbpB
MBP-fusion protein corresponding to Borrelia burgdorferi Dbp-B protein.
Immunogen Type
Recombinant Protein
Storage Condition
Store vial at 4° C prior to restoration. For extended storage aliquot contents and freeze at -20° C or below. Avoid cycles of freezing and thawing. Centrifuge product if not completely clear after standing at room temperature. This product is stable for several weeks at 4° C as an undiluted liquid. Dilute only prior to immediate use.
Application Note
This protein-A purified antibody has been tested for use in Western blotting. Specific conditions for reactivity should be optimized by the user. Expect a band approximately 17.9 kDa in size corresponding to Borrelia burgdorferi DbpB protein by Western blotting in the appropriate cell lysate or extract.
This product was Protein-A purified and cross-adsorbed against MBP from monospecific antiserum by chromatography. This antibody is specific for Borrelia burgdorferi DbpB protein. A BLAST analysis was used to suggest cross-reactivity with DbpB from B. burgdorferi and B. garinii sources based on 100% homology with the immunizing sequence. Cross-reactivity with DbpB from other sources has not been determined.
