An overview of the principles and applications of Western blotting for protein detection. Includes links to detailed protocols, videos, and other resources for protein extraction, gel electrophoresis, transfer to PVDF or nitrocellulose membranes, and chemiluminescent, colorimetric, and fluorescent detection methods.
Protein gel electrophoresis is used to separate proteins for purification, characterization, and detection. Methods such as native PAGE, SDS-PAGE, 2D PAGE, and isoelectric focusing (IEF) are used in preparation for downstream applications including Western blotting, mass spectrometry, and proteomic analysis.
Protein expression technologies for expressing recombinant proteins in E. coli, insect, yeast, and mammalian expression systems for fundamental research and the support of therapeutics and vaccine production.
