Protein transfer from isoelectric focusing gels: The native blot

Michael P. Reinhart, Daniel Malamud

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The nonelectrophoretic transfer of proteins from thin (0.5 mm) isoelectric focusing gels to nitrocellulose was complete in 1 h. Blotting was bidirectional with 60% of the protein transferred to the top blot and the remaining 40% to the bottom blot. The use of nondenaturing transfer buffers permits proteins to be blotted in the native state. Immunological determinants are preserved and enzyme activity can be detected on the blots.
