Human Normal Multiple Tissue Blot I
The premade blots are prepared with the appropriate GenLysate and 50μg protein is loaded onto a 4-20% denaturing polyacrylamide gel, along with a prestained molecular weight marker. After the proteins are resolved they are transferred to a PVDF membrane, using Efficient Western Transfer Buffer.
The blots are ready to be blocked and probed with the antibodies of choice.
Note: We recommend that customers contact our technical department for the latest information on the blots as G-Biosciences reserves the right to change the blot profile due to the availability of GenLysate.
Multi tissue blots permit researchers to visualize the tissue distribution of their protein in a particular species. These have been successfully used for the analysis of a wide variety of proteins. For example, JIP3, a scaffold protein of the JNK pathway, had a specific brain location and was confirmed to be a neuronal protein (1); human Cds1-related kinase had a testicular localization and was shown to be a meiotic checkpoint kinase (2); the TATA-box binding protein related factor was present in all human tissues (3); Geminin, found solely in testis, was shown to be localized to proliferating cells (6).
An example of our multi tissue; single species blots is shown below (Figure 1). The mouse multi tissue blot (Cat. # TB38) was probed with antibodies against caveolin and the human multi tissue blot (Cat. # TB37-I) was probed with Cox-2.
