Dot blotting allows for the rapid screening of a larger number of samples and/or targets than more traditional methods, such as a western blot or in-tissue-based methods. We have developed a dot-blot assay specifically for use with a LiCor Odyssey CLx imager, which allows for sensitive detection of proteins in the infrared range. Here, we provide a detailed protocol for the preparation of brain tissue and neural cell culture lysates for analysis of protein targets by dot blotting.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
