The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.

High-throughput screening of small molecules in miniaturized mammalian cell-based assays involving post-translational modifications. (1/58879)

BACKGROUND: Fully adapting a forward genetic approach to mammalian systems requires efficient methods to alter systematically gene products without prior knowledge of gene sequences, while allowing for the subsequent characterization of these alterations. Ideally, these methods would also allow function to be altered in a temporally controlled manner. RESULTS: We report the development of a miniaturized cell-based assay format that enables a genetic-like approach to understanding cellular pathways in mammalian systems using small molecules, rather than mutations, as the source of gene-product alterations. This whole-cell immunodetection assay can sensitively detect changes in specific cellular macromolecules in high-density arrays of mammalian cells. Furthermore, it is compatible with screening large numbers of small molecules in nanoliter to microliter culture volumes. We refer to this assay format as a 'cytoblot', and demonstrate the use of cytoblotting to monitor biosynthetic processes such as DNA synthesis, and post-translational processes such as acetylation and phosphorylation. Finally, we demonstrate the applicability of these assays to natural-product screening through the identification of marine sponge extracts exhibiting genotype-specific inhibition of 5-bromodeoxyuridine incorporation and suppression of the anti-proliferative effect of rapamycin. CONCLUSIONS: We show that cytoblots can be used for high-throughput screening of small molecules in cell-based assays. Together with small-molecule libraries, the cytoblot assay can be used to perform chemical genetic screens analogous to those used in classical genetics and thus should be applicable to understanding a wide variety of cellular processes, especially those involving post-transitional modifications.  (+info)

Retinoic acid, but not arsenic trioxide, degrades the PLZF/RARalpha fusion protein, without inducing terminal differentiation or apoptosis, in a RA-therapy resistant t(11;17)(q23;q21) APL patient. (2/58879)

Primary blasts of a t(11;17)(q23;q21) acute promyelocytic leukaemia (APL) patient were analysed with respect to retinoic acid (RA) and arsenic trioxide (As2O3) sensitivity as well as PLZF/RARalpha status. Although RA induced partial monocytic differentiation ex vivo, but not in vivo, As203 failed to induce apoptosis in culture, contrasting with t(15;17) APL and arguing against the clinical use of As203 in t(11;17)(q23;q21) APL. Prior to cell culture, PLZF/RARalpha was found to exactly co-localize with PML onto PML nuclear bodies. However upon cell culture, it quickly shifted towards microspeckles, its localization found in transfection experiments. Arsenic trioxide, known to induce aggregation of PML nuclear bodies, left the microspeckled PLZF/RARalpha localization completely unaffected. RA treatment led to PLZF/RARalpha degradation. However, this complete PLZF/RARalpha degradation was not accompanied by differentiation or apoptosis, which could suggest a contribution of the reciprocal RARalpha/PLZF fusion product in leukaemogenesis or the existence of irreversible changes induced by the chimera.  (+info)

Complete nucleotide sequence of the 27-kilobase virulence related locus (vrl) of Dichelobacter nodosus: evidence for extrachromosomal origin. (3/58879)

The vrl locus is preferentially associated with virulent isolates of the ovine footrot pathogen, Dichelobacter nodosus. The complete nucleotide sequence of this 27.1-kb region has now been determined. The data reveal that the locus has a G+C content much higher than the rest of the D. nodosus chromosome and contains 22 open reading frames (ORFs) encoding products including a putative adenine-specific methylase, two potential DEAH ATP-dependent helicases, and two products with sequence similarity to a bacteriophage resistance system. These ORFs are all in the same orientation, and most are either overlapping or separated by only a few nucleotides, suggesting that they comprise an operon and are translationally coupled. Expression vector studies have led to the identification of proteins that correspond to many of these ORFs. These data, in combination with evidence of insertion of vrl into the 3' end of an ssrA gene, are consistent with the hypothesis that the vrl locus was derived from the insertion of a bacteriophage or plasmid into the D. nodosus genome.  (+info)

Relationship between UDP-glucose 4-epimerase activity and oligoglucose glycoforms in two strains of Neisseria meningitidis. (4/58879)

Sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel analysis of lipooligosaccharide (LOS) from Neisseria meningitidis has demonstrated considerable microheterogeneity in the variable region of LOS due to the presence of novel glycoforms. As a step toward understanding the basis for the expression of these novel glycoforms, we have examined the LOS structures and UDP-glucose 4-epimerase (epimerase) activity levels in two strains (NMB and MA-1) and their respective galE mutants. Strain NMB was found to have low epimerase activity and to contain multiple glycoforms, some of which appear to contain only glucose sugars. The galE mutant had only the oligoglucose glycoforms. Strain MA-1 had higher epimerase activity at both log and stationary phases (2- and 12.5-fold, respectively) and one glycoform with a putative lactosyl structure. Strain MA-1 galE had two glycoforms that contained one or two glucose residues. To understand the molecular basis for the different epimerase activities, we examined the predicted amino acid sequences of the respective galE open reading frames and determined the relative amounts of GalE protein. We found no significant differences between the predicted amino acid sequence of the GalE protein in NMB and that in MA-1. We observed no significant differences in the level of GalE protein between MA-1 and NMB at exponential or stationary phase. We also observed an 8.2-fold drop in epimerase activity in NMB between the log and stationary phases that was not due to the GalE protein level or low glucose levels.  (+info)

Characterization of human bactericidal antibodies to Bordetella pertussis. (5/58879)

The Bordetella pertussis BrkA protein protects against the bactericidal activity of complement and antibody; however, some individuals mount an immune response that overcomes this bacterial defense. To further characterize this process, the bactericidal activities of sera from 13 adults with different modes of exposure to B. pertussis (infected as adults, occupational exposure, immunized with an acellular vaccine, or no identified exposure) against a wild-type strain and a BrkA complement-sensitive mutant were evaluated. All of the sera killed the BrkA mutant, suggesting past exposure to B. pertussis or cross-reactive organisms. Several samples had no or minimal activity against the wild type. All of the sera collected from the infected and occupationally exposed individuals but not all of the sera from vaccinated individuals had bactericidal activity against the wild-type strain, suggesting that some types of exposure can induce an immune response that can overcome the BrkA resistance mechanism. Adsorbing serum with the wild-type strain removed the bactericidal antibodies; however, adsorbing the serum with a lipopolysaccharide (LPS) mutant or an avirulent (bvg mutant) strain did not always result in loss of bactericidal activity, suggesting that antibodies to either LPS or bvg-regulated proteins could be bactericidal. All the samples, including those that lacked bactericidal activity, contained antibodies that recognized the LPS of B. pertussis. Bactericidal activity correlated best with the presence of the immunoglobulin G3 (IgG3) antibodies to LPS, the IgG subtype that is most effective at fixing complement.  (+info)

Recently, putative Moraxella catarrhalis lactoferrin receptor genes and a third open reading frame (lbpB, lbpA, and orf3) were cloned and sequenced. We describe the preliminary characterization of isogenic mutants deficient in LbpB, LbpA, or Orf3 protein.  (+info)

Mechanisms related to [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose uptake of human colon cancers transplanted in nude mice. (7/58879)

[18F]Fluorodeoxyglucose ([18F]FDG), a glucose analogue, has been widely used for tumor imaging. To investigate the mechanisms related to [18F]FDG uptake by tumors, an experiment involving nude mice was performed. METHODS: Human colon cancer cell lines SNU-C2A, SNU-C4 and SNU-C5 were transplanted to nude mice. Using immunohistochemical staining and Western blot, the expression of glucose transporter (Glut) isoforms (Glut-1 through -5) in xenografted tumors was analyzed. For the analysis of messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) expression, reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction and Northern blot were used and the enzyme activity of hexokinase in cancer tissues was measured by continuous spectrophotometric rate determination. RESULTS: [18F]FDG uptake in SNU-C4 and SNU-C5 cells was higher than in normal colon cells. Among these cells and xenografted tumors, SNU-C5 showed the highest level of [18F]FDG uptake, followed by SNU-C4 and SNU-C2A. An immunostaining experiment showed intense staining of Glut-1 in SNU-C5 tumors but somewhat faint staining in SNU-C4. SNU-C5 tumors also showed positive staining with Glut-3, although this was not the case with SNU-C2A and SNU-C4. Western blot analysis showed the expression of Glut-1 and Glut-3 in all tumors. Experiments involving Northern blot analysis and reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction confirmed the overexpression of Glut-1 mRNA in all tumors, with the highest level in SNU-C5. The level of Glut-3 mRNA was also elevated in SNU-C5 tumors but not in SNU-C2A and SNU-C4. The enzyme activity of hexokinase did not vary among different tumors. CONCLUSION: Gluts, especially Glut-1, are responsible for [18F]FDG uptake in a nude mouse model of colon cancer rather than hexokinase activity. Increased numbers of glucose transporters at the plasma membrane of cancer cells is attributed to an increased level of transcripts of glucose transporter genes and may be a cause of increased [18F]FDG uptake, at least in colon cancer tumors.  (+info)

Cloning of the peroxiredoxin gene family in rats and characterization of the fourth member. (8/58879)

Peroxiredoxin (PRx) exhibits thioredoxin-dependent peroxidase activity and constitutes a family of proteins. Four members of genes from rat tissues were isolated by PCR using degenerated primers based on the sequences which encode a pair of highly conserved Cys-containing domains, and were then cloned to full-length cDNAs. These included two genes which have previously been isolated in rats, PRx I and PRx II, and two rat homologues of PRx III and PRx IV. We showed, for the first time, the simultaneous expression of all four genes in various rat tissues by Northern blotting. Since a discrepancy exists regarding cellular distribution, we further characterized PRx IV by expressing it in COS-1 cells. This clearly demonstrates that PRx IV is a secretory form and functions within the extracellular space.  (+info)

98.88%--99.49%. In May 2008, fewer false-positive tests occurred; in that month, five (0.11% of 4,749 oral fluid tests) were found to be false positive (specificity: 99.89%). During this second instance of increasing numbers of false-positive oral fluid tests, the clinics continued offering immediate follow-up finger-stick whole-blood rapid tests for all patients with reactive oral fluid tests. The usefulness of the NYC DOHMH policy was affirmed by the strong correlation between results from whole-blood rapid tests and confirmatory Western blot tests. During December 2005--May 2008, 1,720 patients had reactive oral fluid rapid tests, and definitive Western blot results were recorded for 1,664 (Figure 2). Missing Western blot results (24 patients) and inconclusive Western blot results (32 patients) were excluded from additional analysis. Of these 1,664 patients, 1,194 also provided a finger-stick specimen; 850 (71.2%) had a reactive finger-stick test, of whom 840 (98.8%) were positive by Western ...

Im comparing the expression of a protein in my treated animals and controls by western blot. So the way I do it is that I scan the bands ( target protein and actin), measure the color intensity in each band, then put it in this equation; target/actin in treated animals divided by target/actin in control animals. I think in this way I can have a good understanding of the net increase in my target protein. Does it make sense? Do you know any documented equation for that purpose?. ...
OATP1B3 is a 12 transmembrane domain protein expressed at the basolateral membrane of human hepatocytes where it mediates the uptake of numerous drugs and endogenous compounds. Previous western blot results suggest the formation of OATP1B3 multimers. In order to better understand the function of OATP1B3 under normal physiological conditions, we investigated its oligomerization status. We transiently transfected OATP1B3 with a C-terminal His-, FLAG- or HA-tag in HEK293 cells and used co-immunoprecipitation and a Proximity Ligation Assay to detect interactions between the different constructs. All three constructs retained similar transport rates as wild-type OATP1B3. Immunofluorescence experiments indicated that in contrast to wild-type, His- and FLAG-tagged OATP1B3, where the C-terminal end is on the cytoplasmic side of the membrane, the C-terminal end of HA-tagged OATP1B3 is extracellular. After cross-linking, anti-FLAG antibodies were able to pull down FLAG-tagged OATP1B3 (positive control) ...
Abstract: Purpose: CD133 (prominin-1), a 5-transmembrane glycoprotein, has recently been considered an important marker that represents the subset population of cancer stem-like cells. The purpose of the present study is to isolate cancerous stem-like cells from normal healthy volunteers and prostate cancer patients (CD133+) which also express MDR1 and to ascertain the influence of Oct-4 on stem-ness and differentiation of these CD133+ cells towards epithelium. Methods: CD133+ cells were isolated using magnetic beads from normal healthy volunteers and prostate cancer patients (NV-CD133+and PC-CD133+). The isolated cells were analyzed using flow cytometry and Western blot technique for CD133, MDR1 and Oct-4. CD133+MDR1+ cells were cultured in presence and absence of antihuman Oct-4 blocking antibody. Results: PC-CD133+ cells displayed higher Oct-4 expression with the ability to self-renew and may represent a reservoir with differentiation potential for generating prostate cancer cells. ...

These antibodies also detected bands of the predicted size for VP2 (∼110 kDa), VP5 (∼60 kDa) and VP7 (∼38 kDa) in BTV-4(SPA2003/01) infected cell lysates by western-blotting (Fig. 1e, f, g). In contrast to expressed proteins that had been CAPS-denatured, antisera against the soluble amino terminal domain of VP2 contained NAbs with titres of 1.505-1.602 (Table 1), giving ≥50% plaque reduction. Lower titres of neutralising antibodies (0.301-0.477, P < 0.05) were found in antisera against the carboxy-terminal domain. Sera from mice immunised. with: VP2D1 + VP2D2; VP2D1 + VP2D2 + VP5Δ1−100; or VP2D1 + VP2D2 + VP5Δ1−100 + VP7, all neutralised the homologous BTV-4(SPA2003/01) at higher titres (1.806-2.408) but (as expected) failed to neutralise BTV-8 ( Table 1). Neutralising antibody titres generated by Balb/c mice immunised with VP2D1 + VP2D2 + VP5Δ1-100 or VP2D1 + VP2D2 + VP5Δ1-100 + VP7 were not significantly different, but were ...

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is characterized by a strong inflammatory response to inhalation of harmful irritating particles. Recruitment of immune cells that secrete cytokines, chemokines and proteases, consequently leads to airway obstruction and reduced air flow. TLR receptors are primarily responsible for innate immunity and they enhance the response of acquired immunity. There was a link between TLR receptors, activation (phosphorylation) of MAPK kinase (ERK, p38, JNK) and the secretion of various cytokines that cause an inflammatory response. TLR4 agonist (LPS) and TLR2 agonist (LTA) might be used for examination of the inflammatory response induced by these receptors. The aim of this study was the optimization of the conditions for determining the signaling molecules ERK and p38 MAPK from THP-1 cell lines by Western blot method. The results show that the optimal conditions and the best results for all the examined proteins ERK, p-ERK, p38 and p-p38 are achieved by using the ...

For example, the dose of 267 essential to accomplish 50% suppres sion of P AKT when utilized alone was cal culated to get 30M, though in blend with Dt the dose required to achieve the identical FA was reduced three fold. In contrast, the densitometry information indicated that for LCC6Her2 cells, the concentration of 267 necessary in blend with Dt to achieve a defined effect on P AKT inhibition was substantially greater than that essential when 267 was used being a single agent. For instance, 30M 267 was essential to achieve an FA of 0. 5 when 267 was applied alone, how ever, during the presence of Dt the concentration of 267 expected to attain an FA of 0. 5 was estimated to be 130M.

CYTIP (cytohesin interacting protein) is an intracellular molecule induced in dendritic cells during maturation. CYTIP modulates the binding intensity of the adhesion molecule LFA-1. If dendritic cells are silenced for CYTIP they keep longer contacts with T-cells resulting in a lower T cell stimulation. We identified Suppressor of cytokine signaling-1 (SOCS-1) as a binding partner for CYTIP in human monocyte derived dendritic cells. In Western blot analyses we found that CYTIP expression is down regulated at later time points, starting at about 72 hours after induction of maturation. To investigate a possible role for SOCS-1 in taking CYTIP to the degradation machinery of the cell we measured endogenous CYTIP protein levels in mature dendritic cells transfected with SOCS-1 encoding plasmid in quantitative Western blot analyses. We observed lower amounts of endogenous CYTIP in mature dendritic cells transfected with SOCS-1 encoding plasmid compared with untransfected dendritic cells. Experiments with the

Thyroid hormones (THs) and oestrogens are crucial in the regulation of cerebellar development. TH receptors (TRs) mediate these hormone effects and are regulated by both hormone families. We reported earlier that THs and oestradiol (E2) determine TR levels in cerebellar cell culture. Here we demonstrate the effects of low concentrations (10-10 M) of the endocrine disruptor (ED) bisphenol A (BPA) on the hormonal (THs, E2) regulation of TRα,β in rat cerebellar cell culture. Primary cerebellar cell cultures, glia-containing and glia-destroyed, were treated with BPA or a combination of BPA and E2 and/or THs. Oestrogen receptor and TH receptor mRNA and protein levels were determined by real-time qPCR and Western blot techniques. The results show that BPA alone decreases, while BPA in combination with THs and/or E2 increases TR mRNA expression. In contrast, BPA alone increased receptor protein expressions, but did not further increase them in combination with THs and/or E2. The modulatory effects of ...

One of the last steps to optimize is how long to expose a blot before developing it. Modern technologies have attempted to supplant this step: new chemiluminescent detectors have reduced our need to measure how long to expose our blots. However, for those of us that cant afford this fancy new equipment, we may rely on the good old film and developer. Using this methodology, the amount of time film is exposed to your completed blot will affect how dark your bands are, as well as how much background you. Of course, you want to optimize this step so that your image is clear and not misleading. Overexposing a blot can lead to bands that all look the same; in reality, they might not be if you were to expose your blot less. Additionally, taking several exposures - at both short and long lengths - will give you a range from which to choose ...
H-NS family proteins are nucleoid-associated proteins that form oligomers on DNA and function as global regulators. They are found in both bacterial chromosomes and plasmids, and were suggested to be candidate effectors of the interaction between them. TurA and TurB are the predominantly expressed H-NS family proteins encoded on the chromosome of Pseudomonas putida KT2440, while Pmr is encoded on the carbazole-degradative incompatibility group P-7 plasmid pCAR1. Previous transcriptome analyses suggested that they function cooperatively, but play different roles in the global transcriptional network. In addition to differences in protein interaction and DNA-binding functions, cell expression levels are important in clarifying the detailed underlying mechanisms. Here, we determined the precise protein amounts of TurA, TurB, and Pmr in KT2440 in the presence and absence of pCAR1. The intracellular amounts of TurA and TurB in KT2440 and KT2440(pCAR1) were determined by quantitative western blot analysis
Densitometry data generated for Western blots are commonly used to compare protein abundance between samples. In the last decade, it has become apparent that assumptions underpinning these comparisons are often violated in studies reporting Western blot data in the literature. These violations can lead to erroneous interpretations of data and may contribute to poor reproducibility of research. We assessed the reliability of Western blot data obtained to study human myometrial tissue proteins. We ran dilution series of protein lysates to explore the linearity of densitometry data. Proteins analysed included |i|α|/i|SMA, HSP27, ERK1/2, and GAPDH. While ideal densitometry data are directly proportional to protein abundance, our data confirm that densitometry data often deviate from this ideal, in which case they can fit nonproportional linear or hyperbolic mathematical models and can reach saturation. Nonlinear densitometry data were observed when Western blots were detected using infrared
These data demonstrate icIL-1ra type I mRNA, sIL-1ra mRNA, and IL-1ra protein in human coronary arteries. IL-1ra protein colocalizes with IL-1β predominantly in the endothelium of these arteries, with less IL-1ra mRNA expression occurring in less-diseased DCM arteries. To our knowledge, this is the first documentation of IL-1ra expression by HCAECs. We also show only icIL-1ra type I mRNA expression in HUVECs and HCAECs stimulated in vitro with LPS/PMA or TGF-β. Previous reports have failed to detect IL-1ra mRNA in these cell types with the use of other stimuli and less sensitive detection methods, such as Northern blots,5 and there are no previous reports of immunohistochemistry for IL-1ra in human vessels. With the use of immunoprecipitation/Western blot techniques, our data also confirm that the expression of IL-1ra in HUVECs and HCAECs is intracellular. We have also demonstrated that the rare allele (IL-1RN *2/*2) of a VNTR polymorphism in the IL-1RN gene is associated with significantly ...

Many cancer patients develop tumor-reactive immune responses against antigens that are either expressed on the surface of tumor cells or released from them into the peripheral circulation. In this study, tumor-reactive immunoglobulins, present in the sera of ovarian cancer patients, were used to identify commonly recognized tumor-associated antigens on ovarian tumor cells. Western immunoblot analysis of cellular proteins, obtained from UL-1 ovarian tumor cell line, demonstrated several commonly recognized immunoreactive proteins. Two of these proteins (Mr 32,000 and 71,000) were selected for further investigation. Cellular proteins isolated from normal human ovarian epithelia, in a similar fashion, failed to exhibit corresponding immunoreactivity to these proteins. As an additional control, sera from normal (nontumor-bearing) individuals failed to identify these proteins on Western immunoblots. Furthermore, the absorption of the ovarian cancer patients sera with normal ovarian epithelial tissue ...

  • We use wet blot transfer for our proteins the molecular weight of which is 18 -19 KDa. (
  • Western blot assays are a popular technique used to analyze protein expression by determining the molecular weight of proteins, their post-translational modifications, and their abundance. (
  • The key to a successful Western blot is achieving a signal to noise ratio allowing the detection of proteins while minimizing the background noise. (
  • The transfer of macromolecules such as nucleic acids and proteins to solid-phase membranous support is termed as blotting. (

  • More than three decades after its invention, the Western blot remains a crucial tool for investigators who need to reliably identify specific proteins. (
  • The first step of a Western blot involves using gel electrophoresis to separate proteins by size, which are transferred to a membrane (usually nitrocellulose or polyvinylidene difluoride) by placing the membrane on top of the gel, adding several sheets of filter paper on top of that, and then placing the entire stack in buffer solution, which draws the proteins up to the membrane using capillary action. (
  • Two additional techniques, dry and semi-dry blotting, are quicker and less messy than traditional wet blotting, but less effective for high molecular weight proteins. (
  • In semi-dry blotting, the membrane and gel are placed between layers of buffer-soaked filter papers, which are in turn sandwiched between an anode and a cathode so an electric current helps drive proteins to the membrane. (

  • Fluorescent detection allows the blots to be used quantitatively because proteins on the blot are not perturbed by harsh stripping chemicals. (
  • When combined with a wide dynamic range, optimized fluorescent Western blots can be used quantitatively, since both low and high abundance proteins can be detected on the same blot without saturating detection. (
  • Housekeeping genes and proteins, including β-Actin, GAPDH, HPRT1, and RPLP1, are often used as internal controls in western blots because they are thought to be expressed constitutively, at the same levels, across experiments. (
  • When using fluorescent antibodies to image proteins in western blots, normalization requires that the user define the upper and lower limits of quantitation and characterize the linear relationship between signal intensity and the sample mass volume for each antigen. (
  • Lower expressing proteins are difficult to detect on the same blot. (
  • Fluorescent stains and stain-free gels require special equipment to visualize the proteins on the gel/blot. (

  • Microwestern arrays "should be useful for analysis of proteins from cell lines and tissues from which there are sufficient lysates to print hundreds of MWAs that could be distributed en masse in an analogous manner to spotted DNA microarrays for interrogation with the user's choice of antibodies," the researchers said. (
  • Using this method (Blotting and Removal of Nitrocellulose (BARN)), proteins can be analyzed either as intact proteins for molecular weight determination or as peptides generated by on-membrane proteolysis. (
  • Finally, we demonstrate the utility of BARN for the direct identification of soluble and membrane proteins after Western blotting, obtaining comparable or better results than with in-gel digestion. (
  • This method (Blotting and Removal of Nitrocellulose [BARN]) also allows the identification of electroblotted proteins after Western blotting on the same NC band, thus significantly reducing the time and sample size needed per analysis and eliminating the need for the difficult correlation of protein bands or spots detected by Western blot on the NC to another stained gel or membrane ( 16 ).
