ZooMAb® antibodies represent an entirely new generation of recombinant monoclonal antibodies.
Each ZooMAb® antibody is manufactured using our proprietary recombinant expression system, purified to homogeneity, and precisely dispensed to produce robust and highly reproducible lot-to-lot consistency. Only top-performing clones are released for use by researchers. Each antibody is validated for high specificity and affinity across multiple applications, including its most commonly used application. ZooMAb® antibodies are reliably available and ready to ship when you need them.

Lysosomal acid glucosylceramidase (UniProt: P04062; also known as EC:188.8.131.52; Lysosomal acid GCase, Acid beta-glucosidase, Alglucerase, Beta-glucocerebrosidase, Beta-GC, Cholesterol glucosyltransferase, SGTase, Cholesteryl-beta-glucosidase, D-glucosyl-N-acylsphingosine glucohydrolase, Imiglucerase) is encoded by the GBA (also known as GC, GLUC) gene (Gene ID: 2629) in human. β-Glucocerebrosidase is a peripheral membrane glycoprotein that catalyzes the hydrolysis of glucosylceramide/GlcCer into free ceramide and glucose in the lysosomal compartment. It is shown to be maximally active at pH 5.5. Within the lysosome, it remains associated with the membrane, where it binds and degrades its substrate. Its interaction with saposin-C is reported to promote its membrane association. It plays a key role in the degradation of complex lipids and the turnover of cellular membranes. Through the production of ceramides, it participates in the PKC-activated salvage pathway of ceramide formation. It is also reported to plays a role in cholesterol metabolism and can catalyze the glucosylation of cholesterol, through a transglucosylation reaction that transfers glucose from glucosylceramide to cholesterol. Mutations in GBA gene are shown to cause Gaucher disease, a lysosomal storage disease characterized by accumulation of glucosylceramide in the reticulo-endothelial system. GBA mutations are also shown to be the strongest known risk factor for the development of Parkinson s disease. Five isoforms of β-Glucocerebrosidase have been described that are produced by alternative splicing. This ZooMAb® recombinant monoclonal antibody, generated by our propriety technology, offers significantly enhanced specificity, affinity, reproducibility, and stability over conventional monoclonals.
Purified recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibody IgG, lyophilized in PBS with 5% Trehalose, normal appearance a coarse or translucent resin. The PBS/trehalose components in the ZooMAb formulation can have the appearance of a semi-solid (bead like gel) after lyophilization. This is a normal phenomenon. Please follow the recommended reconstitution procedure in the data sheet to dissolve the semi-solid, bead-like, gel-appearing material. The resulting antibody solution is completely stable and functional as proven by full functional testing. Contains no biocide or preservatives, such as azide, or any animal by-products. Larger pack sizes provided as multiples of 25 μL.
300 μg/mL after reconstitution at 25 μL per vial. Please refer to guidance on suggested starting dilutions and/or titers per application and sample type.
Storage and Stability
Recommend storage of lyophilized product at 2-8°C; Before reconstitution, micro-centrifuge vials briefly to spin down material to bottom of the vial; Reconstitute each vial by adding 25 μL of filtered lab grade water or PBS; Reconstituted antibodies can be stored at 2-8°C, or -20°C for long term storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaws.
