Western blot-based protein analysis remains the go-to experiment to assess a protein’s expression level or posttranslational modifications. Despite its popularity, it is difficult to obtain a reproducible, publication-ready western blot, and researchers often face a long-winded optimization process when starting a new experiment with a different antibody or tissue type.
In this Technique Talk, Aldrin Gomes will reveal tried-and-true techniques for transforming blurry protein gels into crisp, reproducible western blots.
- How to prepare protein lysates for high-quality western blot results
- Common pitfalls and how to avoid them
- Tips to detect low abundance proteins accurately and reproducibly
- How to obtain publication-ready images
