Western blot tools and techniques evolving rapidly

Western blot is one of the most reliable methods to characterize protein expression. Using straightforward protocols and relatively inexpensive reagents, it provides a semi-quantitative visual assessment of even low-abundance targets. This is achieved through partial protein purification according to size, prior to highly specific antibody-based detection of the target of interest. Western blot has been [...]
