Smile Estimation Of Protein From Sds-page



Hello,

Good Morning, eveybody. I want to know the concentration of protein separated on SDS-PAGE i.e. estimation of protein present in the sample. What are the methods that we can follow for the estimation of a specific protein in a sample.

If anybody knows, please give reply.

Default Re: Estimation Of Protein From Sds-page

The best way I have found to estimate protein amount in a band on SDS-PAGE is to run a standard curve of a purified protein of known concentration, i.e. BSA. In part of the gel, run serial dilutions of BSA whose concentrations cover the likely range of your protein of interest. In the same gel, run one or two dilutions of your sample. Stain with Coomassie Blue and image the gel. By eye, you can compare your sample band to the BSA bands and get a range or estimation of concentration, or you can scan/take a picture of the gel and use a program like ImageJ to measure band intensity, plot the BSA standard curve, and find where the intensity of your unknown falls on that standard curve.

This will give you an estimate of concentration -- it's not quite as quantative as a Bradford or Lowry assay, but it does work better than a Bradford if your sample is not pure. The more points in your standard curve, and the more sample dilutions you use, the better the quantitation. The caveats for this method include that BSA may take up dye at a different ratio than your protein of interest, pipetting error plays a role as well as leakage from the wells, and your staining needs to be consistent across the gel.

WesternBright Quantum is a new chemiluminescent western blot reagent specially formulated for CCD imaging. This novel Horseradish peroxidase (HRP) substrate provides a strong, long-lasting signal, the broadest useful linear range and high sensitivity for the most quantitative chemiluminescent Western assays.

Chemiluminescence is the method of choice for sensitive Western blot detection, but has not been considered quantitative, primarily because of the limited linear dynamic range of film, and of commercially available substrates. WesternBright Quantum HRP substrate overcomes the limitations of other substrates, showing no substrate depletion at high protein loads. WesternBright Quantum is specially formulated for quantitative chemiluminescent Western blotting, producing a linear signal over a broad range of protein concentrations spanning 3 orders of magnitude. Combined with CCD imaging, which provides a much greater linear dynamic range than film, WesternBright Quantum allows highly quantitative data to be obtained from chemiluminescent Western blots.

WesternBright Quantum chemiluminescent western blot reagent substrate sets the bar for both sensitivity and quantitative ability. Specially developed for CCD imaging, WesternBright Quantum produces a strong, long-lasting signal with extremely low background, perfect for detecting low abundance proteins. Since it does not exhibit substrate depletion at high protein loads, WesternBright Quantum provides the largest dynamic range of any chemiluminescent substrate for the most quantitative chemiluminescent Western experiments.
The broadest linear range for the most powerful quantitation
Accurate comparison of the intensities of different protein bands requires that the bands be within the linear dynamic range of detection, which is the range of concentrations from the faintest band that can be detected to the most intense band for which the signal is not saturated.
