3 Western Blot Principle
Western blot is an important technique used in cell and molecular biology. By using a western blot, researchers are able to identify specific proteins from a complex mixture of proteins extracted from cells. The basic principle of western blot is to use three elements to accomplish this task: separation by size, transfer to a solid support, and marking target protein using a proper primary and secondary antibody to visualize.

4 Western Blot Procedure

5 Western Blot Troubleshooting
For more common problems in western blot and related troubleshooting, please visit: Common Problems Recommended Troubleshooting Unusual or unexpected bands Use a fresh sample which had been kept on ice or alter the antibody; Make sure the transfer sandwich is prepared properly; Change the running buffer. Learn more… No bands Make sure to use the right and appropriate concentration of antibody; Increase the conc. of antigen; Buffers should be new and uncontaminated; Lower the washing time. Learn more… Faint bands or weak signal Increase the conc. of antigen or antibody; Increase exposure time; Change nonfat dry milk into BSA or decrease the amount of milk. Learn more… High background Lower the conc. of antibody; Increase washing time; Decrease exposure time. Learn more… Patchy or uneven spots Make sure of no air bubbles during transfer; use a shaker for all incubation; Change blocking buffer.
