Clean-Blot IP Detection Reagents and Kit


Secondary probes for clearer Western blot results with IP assays.

Clean-Blot IP Detection Reagents and Kit

Thermo Scientific Clean-Blot IP Detection Reagent is a horseradish peroxidase conjugate that is optimized for post-immunoprecipitation Western blot detection of primary antibodies without interference from denatured IP antibody fragments.

The Clean-Blot IP Reagent allows trouble-free Western blot detection of target proteins following IP assays (immunoprecipitation). It works by specifically binding to functional primary antibodies (whole IgG) without also binding to fragments of the IP antibodies, which usually accompany the immunoprecipitated protein through electrophoresis and membrane transfer. The Clean-Blot IP Reagent and Kit eliminate detection-interference from both heavy-chain (approx. 50kDa) and light-chain (25kDa) IgG-fragments of antibodies used for the initial immunoprecipitation assay. Clean-Blot IP products the standalone detection reagent and a the complete Clean-Blot IP Detection Kit (HRP) for chemiluminescent substrate development.

Highlights:

  • Universal – bind and detect most species, IgG subclasses and isotypes of primary antibodies that are commonly used for Western blotting
  • Compatible – effective with IP assays performed using Protein A, Protein G, or anti-IgG agarose beads and any blocking buffer
  • Cost-effective – eliminates the cost and extra work associated with covalently immobilizing IP antibodies as a means of overcoming Western blot interference
  • Flexible – horseradish peroxidase (HRP) reagent for detection with chemiluminescent, fluorescent or colorimetric substrates
  • Easy to use – no need to change the Western blotting protocol; simply replace conventional secondary HRP conjugate with the Clean-Blot IP Detection Reagent
  • Unobstructed detection – clear Western blot results for immmunoprecipitation assays without significant interference from denatured IgG bands

Includes:

Kit contains Clean-Blot Detection Reagent (HRP), blocking buffer and Thermo Scientific Pierce ECL Substrate (chemiluminescent)

Specificity of the Clean-Blot IP Detection Reagents

Immunoprecipitation (IP) and Western blot experiments demonstrate specificity of the Clean-Blot IP Detection Reagent (HRP). The main panel (lanes 1 to 5) shows secondary detection of p53 with the Clean-Blot IP Reagent (HRP) of various control and IP conditions. The small panel (lane 6) shows detection with peroxidase-conjugated goat anti-mouse IgG (GAM-HRP).

Lane 1: A431 total cell extract expressing p53 (positive control). Lanes 2 and 3: Wash and elution fractions from no-lysate (negative control) IP and blot performed with anti-p53 primary antibody. Lanes 4 to 6: Wash and elution fractions of the complete IP experiment for p53.

As the main panel reveals, the Clean-Blot IP Reagent detects the primary anti-p53 antibody used for the Western blot but does not detect fragments of the anti-p53 antibody carried forward from the IP reaction. By contrast, the GAM-HRP (lane 6) detects both primary- and IP-components of the anti-p53 antibody.

No endogenous IgG interference with the Clean-Blot IP Detection Reagents
Detect target proteins on Western blots with Clean-Blot IP Reagents without detecting endogenous IgG. Mouse liver extract (50µg) total protein was separated by SDS-PAGE, transferred to PVDF membrane and blocked with 1% milk in TBST. The membrane was probed with mouse monoclonal anti-Cdk1 (0.2µg/mL), followed by goat anti-mouse HRP (0.16µg/mL) or Clean-Blot IP Detection Reagent (HRP) (0.2µg/mL). Thermo Scientific SuperSignal West Pico Substrate (Part No. 34080) was used for final development. Liver extracts contain endogenous IgG, whose fragments are detected by anti-mouse IgG secondary antibodies (two left panels) but not by the Clean-Blot IP Detection Reagent (two right panels).

 

Clearer, more specific Western blots with Clean-Blot IP Detection Reagents
Reveal target proteins without interference from IP antibodies. NFκB and Bax were immunoprecipitated from A549 lysate using Protein A/G agarose resin and rabbit anti-NFκB (panels A and B) and rabbit anti-Bax (Panels C and D). Fractions from each IP assay were separated by SDS-PAGE, transferred to PVDF membranes, blocked and then probed for the respective targets with the same target-specific antibodies. Panels A and C were secondarily detected with goat anti-rabbit HRP, which masked the target. Panels B and D were secondarily detected with the Clean-Blot IP Detection Reagent (HRP), unambiguously revealing the target protein without interference. All blots were developed using Thermo Scientific Pierce ECL Substrate (Part No. 32106).
