Immunoblotting allows detection of a protein antigen immobilized on the protein-retaining membrane support such as nitrocellulose or polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF). The detection of the protein of interest relies on the binding of an antibody that specifically recognizes the protein of interest exposed on the membrane. The protein of interest can be purified or mixed with other proteins as in cell or tissue extracts. Usually immunoblotting combines the resolution of proteins by gel electrophoresis with immunochemical detection and is referred to as "western blotting." Immunoblotting can be used to determine the presence and the steady-state level of the protein of interest in the sample, its relative molecular weight, and the distribution of the protein between cellular fractions. Immunoblotting can be performed using the antibodies raised against synthetic peptide antigens modified to mimic posttranslational modifications of proteins, such as phosphorylation and acetylation, to study these modifications in the protein of interest in vivo. When antibodies against the protein of interest are not available, immunoblotting can be performed using antibodies that specifically recognize the recombinant epitope tags (hemagglutinin [HA]-, Flag-, cMyc-, or glutathione--transferase [GST]) fused to the protein of interest using recombinant DNA techniques. Immunoblotting has a variety of research, clinical, and forensic medicine applications. It is also one of the standard techniques for characterization of antibodies from different samples of polyclonal sera or hybridoma supernatants.

Improved expression of single-chain antibodies in Ustilago maydis.

To produce the full repertoire of biopharmaceutical proteins, alternative expression platforms are required. Systems that enable secretion of the target protein are favored because this facilitates downstream processing. Ustilago maydis is a promising fungal model organism for future applications in protein expression. Recently, we described the exploitation of a novel unconventional secretion mechanism for the export of heterologous proteins. In this mode of secretion, the endochitinase Cts1 functions as a carrier for export with the main advantage of avoiding potentially harmful N-glycosylation. The major limitation until now was a low yield of secreted full-length protein. For optimization, we identified two bottlenecks: mRNA amount and extracellular proteolytic activity. By generating novel expression vectors harboring a strong constitutive promoter as well as eliminating harmful proteases, yields were increased significantly. A scFv antibody fragment against the cMyc epitope served as proof-of-principle and could be purified in its active, full-length form from the culture supernatant. Thus, we improved the novel expression system in U. maydis such that it can now be investigated with respect to other targets with potential applications for instance in diagnostics and medicine.

Secretory TAT-peptide-mediated protein transduction of LIF receptor α-chain distal cytoplasmic motifs into human myeloid HL-60 cells.

The distal cytoplasmic motifs of leukemia inhibitory factor receptor α-chain (LIFRα-CT3) can independently induce intracellular myeloid differentiation in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cells by gene transfection; however, there are significant limitations in the potential clinical use of these motifs due to liposome-derived genetic modifications. To produce a potentially therapeutic LIFRα-CT3 with cell-permeable activity, we constructed a eukaryotic expression pcDNA3.0-TAT-CT3-cMyc plasmid with a signal peptide (ss) inserted into the N-terminal that codes for an ss-TAT-CT3-cMyc fusion protein. The stable transfection of Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells via this vector and subsequent selection by Geneticin resulted in cell lines that express and secrete TAT-CT3-cMyc. The spent medium of pcDNA3.0-TAT-CT3-cMyc-transfected CHO cells could be purified using a cMyc-epitope-tag agarose affinity chromatography column and could be detected via SDS-PAGE, with antibodies against cMyc-tag. The direct administration of TAT-CT3-cMyc to HL-60 cell culture media caused the enrichment of CT3-cMyc in the cytoplasm and nucleus within 30 min and led to a significant reduction of viable cells (P < 0.05) 8 h after exposure. The advantages of using this mammalian expression system include the ease of generating TAT fusion proteins that are adequately transcripted and the potential for a sustained production of such proteins in vitro for future AML therapy.

PIN-G reporter for imaging and defining trafficking signals in membrane proteins.

The identification of motifs that control the intracellular trafficking of proteins is a fundamental objective of cell biology. Once identified, such regions should, in principle, be both necessary and sufficient to direct any randomly distributed protein, acting as a reporter, to the subcellular compartment in question. However, most reporter proteins have limited versatility owing to their endogenous expression and limited modes of detection--especially in live cells. To surmount such limitations, we engineered a plasmid--pIN-G--encoding an entirely artificial, type I transmembrane reporter protein (PIN-G), containing HA, cMyc and GFP epitope, and fluorescence tags. Although originally designed for trafficking studies, pIN technology is a powerful tool applicable to almost every area of biology. Here we describe the methodologies used routinely in analyzing pIN constructs and some of their derivatives.

Gateway-compatible vectors for plant functional genomics and proteomics.

Gateway cloning technology facilitates high-throughput cloning of target sequences by making use of the bacteriophage lambda site-specific recombination system. Target sequences are first captured in a commercially available "entry vector" and are then recombined into various "destination vectors" for expression in different experimental organisms. Gateway technology has been embraced by a number of plant laboratories that have engineered destination vectors for promoter specificity analyses, protein localization studies, protein/protein interaction studies, constitutive or inducible protein expression studies, gene knockdown by RNA interference, or affinity purification experiments. We review the various types of Gateway destination vectors that are currently available to the plant research community and provide links and references to enable additional information to be obtained concerning these vectors. We also describe a set of "pEarleyGate" plasmid vectors for Agrobacterium-mediated plant transformation that translationally fuse FLAG, HA, cMyc, AcV5 or tandem affinity purification epitope tags onto target proteins, with or without an adjacent fluorescent protein. The oligopeptide epitope tags allow the affinity purification, immunolocalization or immunoprecipitation of recombinant proteins expressed in vivo. We demonstrate the utility of pEarleyGate destination vectors for the expression of epitope-tagged proteins that can be affinity captured or localized by immunofluorescence microscopy. Antibodies detecting the FLAG, HA, cMyc and AcV5 tags show relatively little cross-reaction with endogenous proteins in a variety of monocotyledonous and dicotyledonous plants, suggesting broad utility for the tags and vectors.
