BirA Biotin Ligase, MBP-tag, Recombinant
BirA biotin ligase was expressed as maltose-binding protein (MBP) fusion in an E. coli cells. The dual 6xHis-MBP tag at the N-terminus is useful for removal of BirA after biotinylation through either Ni-NTA or amylose resin columns.
Catalog number: MBBL-301
Expression host: Escherichia coli (E. coli).
Expressed Region of BirA protein: Asp3–Lys321 (UniProtKB - P06709; BIRA_ECOLI)
