Western blot analysis of extracts from HeLa and HepG2 cell lines, grown in media with 5% FBS and havested without PBS wash (+ FBS) or harvested with 3 PBS washes (- FBS), using BSA (D4L9G) Mouse mAb (upper) and β-Tubulin (D2N5G) Rabbit mAb #15115 (lower).Learn more about how we get our images.
For western blots, incubate membrane with diluted primary antibody in 5% w/v nonfat dry milk, 1X TBS, 0.1% Tween® 20 at 4°C with gentle shaking, overnight.
NOTE: Please refer to primary antibody datasheet or product webpage for recommended antibody dilution.
From sample preparation to detection, the reagents you need for your Western Blot are now in one convenient kit: #12957 Western Blotting Application Solutions Kit
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalent grade water.
Load 20 µl onto SDS-PAGE gel (10 cm x 10 cm).
NOTE: Volumes are for 10 cm x 10 cm (100 cm2) of membrane; for different sized membranes, adjust volumes accordingly.
* Avoid repeated exposure to skin.

Reprobing of an existing membrane is a convenient means to immunoblot for multiple proteins independently when only a limited amount of sample is available. It should be noted that for the best possible results a fresh blot is always recommended. Reprobing can be a valuable method but with each reprobing of a blot there is potential for increased background signal. Additionally, it is recommended that you verify the removal of the first antibody complex prior to reprobing so that signal attributed to binding of the new antibody is not leftover signal from the first immunoblotting experiment. This can be done by re-exposing the blot to ECL reagents and making sure there is no signal prior to adding the next primary antibody.
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalently purified water.

Protocol Id: 19
Supplied in 10 mM sodium HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 100 µg/ml gelatin, 50% glycerol and less than 0.02% sodium azide. Store at –20°C. Do not aliquot the antibody.
BSA (D4L9G) Mouse mAb recognizes total bovine albumin protein. The antibody does not detect human albumin. Note: For best results, avoid reagents that contain BSA.
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with recombinant bovine BSA protein.
Bovine serum albumin (BSA) is the most abundant protein in plasma. Albumin is predominantly synthesized in the liver and is a major transportation component for many endogenous and exogenous compounds, including fatty acids, steroid hormones, metabolites and drugs. It is also responsible for maintaining colloid osmotic pressure and may affect microvascular integrity (1).
