Default Proteins Digest, Vol 21, Issue 9

Hi Adam,

People do often use low concentrations of detergent in ELISA buffers (0.01 -
0.1% Tween, for instance), especially in washes between incubations. It may
help cut down on non-specific backgrounds. Amounts you are likely to use
for extracting proteins are almost certainly too high though. That is,
until you dilute your sample for the assay, as I expect you might.

If you still might have too much detergent, why not dialyze your sample vs.
your assay buffer? Or if that's unacceptable, you could do a few cycles of
partial extraction buffer removal and re-dilution in assay buffer on a
centrifuge filter concentrator. Good luck, and btw do you have any affinity
column experience?

I wonder if anyone might be able to give me some advice about how to go
setting up an ELISA: I'm looking at fairly subtle changes in membrane
expression (SGLT1 transporter) in intestinal tissue samples. I have been
Western blots, and quantifying with densitometry, but I want to try to get
slightly more quantitative results. My initial main concern is the protein
extraction. Up till now, I've been using triton X in lysis buffer. Will this
interfere with the ELISA, and do I need to find a different extraction
for extracting the protein? Alternatively, does anyone know if I can remove
detergent from the samples?

With many thanks!
