Hello Phil,

I have seen you post online many times offering help to people who have questions about stripping membranes. I was wondering if you have any advise for my problem. I performed an IP with Syk and then probed with 4G10. Upon stripping
(Bio-Rad Restore Stripping buffer for 30 minutes and then 30 minutes
washing in TBS-T) and re-probing for total Syk protein pulled down I
see white bands where Syk should be. Thinking I just had too much
primary antibody I stripped again (same as first strip) and I reduced
the dilution form 1:1000 to 1:3000, but again the white bands.

I thought, maybe since the 4G10 antibody is a monoclonal antibody and
has very high affinity I may not be completely stripping the 4G10 off
and therefore what I am seeing is the 4G10 blocking the ability of the
Syk antibody to bind. So I stripped again under the following
conditions: 10mM Tris pH 6.7, 2% SDS, 100mM 2-ME at 56C for 40 minutes.
This seemed to help a bit more. This time I could see the Syk band
where it should be but in a few lands where the IP showed a stronger
signal I still see white bands!!

I really need these loading
controls, otherwise many very expensive experiments are not very
useful, as you all know. I am just not sure what to do next. I am
planning on stripping again with 0.2M NaOH but am not sure this will
help or hurt? Any suggestions would be really appreciated!

Thank you for your time and help.

You could try probing in the opposite order: Syk then 4G10
