These lysates have not been subjected to denaturing or reducing conditions. This allows the tissue or cell lysate to be used in a variety of applications; to study protein-protein interaction, ligand binding, ELISA, immunoprecipitation, 1D and 2D gel electrophoresis, and Western blotting for the detection of specific protein targets. For use in 1D and 2D gel electrophoresis, the addition of a denaturing gel loading buffer with reducing agents may be required.
Buffer requirements for performing protein-protein interaction and ligand binding studies can vary significantly from RIPA buffer and may require modifications. In most cases, tissue lysates in RIPA buffer can be used, directly in standard ELISA and immunoprecipitation assays.
This material has tested negative for HbsAg, HIV 1/2, and HCV. Use UNIVERSAL PRECAUTIONS when handling. Human tissue derivatives must be treated as a potentially infectious agent and disposed of appropriately.
