Do you know about western blotting?

Page View:


The Western blot detection technology currently used is not the original Western blot (IBT) but an optimized and improved method.

Traditional Western Blotting (IBT): the protein is separated and purified by electrophoresis and transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane. Then, an autoimmune serum is used as a probe to react with, bind to, and attach to the antigen on the membrane. The color reaction between the enzyme-linked immunoglobulin antibody and the substrate detects the antibody. Although this method combines the high resolution of polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and the high sensitivity of biomolecular affinity technology, it has many shortcomings. 1) Although the molecular weight of the traditional IBT method is different in the electrophoretic separation of proteins because of their different charges, the swimming speed in the electric field can still be the same so that the proteins of different molecular weights may have bands with the same electrophoretic distance. 2) The slope of the protein bands during electrophoresis brings specific difficulties to identifying these bands. 3) The antigen in the traditional IBT method is denatured. Even though some antibodies may recognize the denatured epitope on the transfer membrane, not all antibodies can react with the denatured epitope. 4) The traditional IBT method cannot detect antibodies against conformation-dependent epitopes, resulting in missed detection of specific antibodies. For example, the epitope conformation of SSA autoantigen in autoantibody repertoire detection will be destroyed by gel electrophoresis.

The linear immunoassay method (LIA) can also be called the enzyme immunobanding method. This technique coats the antigen purified by affinity chromatography or the antigen purified by genetic recombination technology on a fixed nitrocellulose membrane Fixed position. Each antibody corresponds to only one band. No non-specific reaction bands are generated and can be customized according to the needs of disease detection. This new detection method has high specificity and sensitivity, and the results are accurate and easy to interpret. At present, Yahuilong's blotting detection platform has the following:

Multiple indicators: provide the most comprehensive and reasonable combination of hands; up to 17 hands can be tested in one experiment;

Project complete: antinuclear antibody spectrum, vasculitis spectrum, autoimmune liver disease spectrum, autoimmune diabetes spectrum, comprehensive autoantibody spectrum, etc., to meet different clinical needs;

Easy to interpret: use the linear immunoassay method, and each/two indicators correspond to a membrane block; the color is clear and easy to interpret;

Accurate results: The antigens are all highly purified or recombined, containing weak positive, medium positive, and joyous solid quality control bands. The interpretation is accurate and reliable;

Simple operation:

  • Supporting Tenfly Auto's automatic western blotting analyzer automatic operation

  • Automatic interpretation

  • Providing a perfect overall solution for western blotting
