Beta Lactamase, E. coli Recombinant Protein is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain that contains 264 amino acids and has a molecular mass of approximately 28.9 kDa. Beta Lactamase is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Beta-lactamase is a type of enzyme (EC 18.104.22.168) produced by some bacteria that is responsible for their resistance to beta-lactam antibiotics like penicillins, cephalosporins, cephamycins and carbapenems. These antibiotics have a common element in their molecular structure: a four-atom ring known as a beta-lactam. The lactamase enzyme breaks that ring open, deactivating the molecule's antibacterial properties.

Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
One unit will hydrolyze 1.0 μmole of benzyl penicillin at pH 7.0 at 25°C, in presence of EDTA.
Sterile-filtered, white lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder. Lyophilized from a concentrated solution in 100 mM Tris, pH 7.0.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Beta Lactamase in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O at a concentration of 100 µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions. The Beta Lactamase should be used in pH 7.0- 8.0 and in temperature not higher then 45°C.
Ships at ambient temperature. Upon receipt, store the product at the temperature recommended below.
Lyophilized Beta Lactamase, although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution, Beta Lactamase Recombinant should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
