    western blot using anti-AGO6 antibodies'

    360 µg/well of Arabidopsis thaliana protein extracted from leaf using TCA-protein precipitation (for method check protocol tab) and saturated in 8M urea were separated on 15% SDS-PAGE and blotted for 1hour to 0.2 µm nitrocellulose at 100V using wet transfer system. Blots were blocked with 0.5% cold fish gelatin for 1hr at room temp with agitation. Blot was incubated in the primary antibody (anti-H3) at a dilution of 1:2500 for an hour at RT with agitation. The blots were washed with 3X 15min TBS-TT at RT with agitation. Blots as incubated in the secondary antibody (goat anti-rabbit DyLight® 800 conjugated, AS12 2460, Agrisera) 1:5000 dilution for 30min at RT with agitation and washed 1X with TBSTT for 15min, 1X with TBST for 15min before scanning with the ODyssey IRD scanner.

  • Additional Information
  • Additional information:

    There can be a reaction with NEB broad range prestained protein ladder depending upon secondary antibody used.

    AGO6 accumulates to lower levels in the nrpd1a mutant (Havecker at el. 2010). In addition, a non-specific band migrates to a similar location and thus protein was run on a 6% denaturing gel to obtain good separation.

    If other secondary antibody is used than in the figure below, cross-reacting pattern can be different.

    Additional information (application): AGO6 expression is cell specific, Seedlings can be used as a negative control
  • Background
  • Background:

    AGO6 (Argonaute 6) belongs to a group of argonaute proteins which are catalytic component of the RNA-incudes silencing complex (RISC). This protein complex is responsible for the gene silencing (RNAi).

  • Protocols
  • TCA/Acetone protein precipitation method for plant proteins


    • Grind plant tissue in a liquid nitrogen. 
    • Continue grinding with 10% TCA solution in acetone (ice cold).
    • Precipitate overnight in -20C.
    • Spin at 4°C for 1min, 17k rpm > wash with ice cold acetone until you obtain a white pellet.
    • Dissolve the pellet in buffer of choice (for example 8M urea containing 5mM DTT, or denaturate in SDS protein loading buffer for 10 min. at 70°C)
    • Clarify supernatant
    • Measure protein concentration. 
    • Proceed with a western blot.

    Example of a western blot result obtained with this method, which allows high protein load per well, can be found below. 



    western blot using anti-AGO4 antibodies


    360 µg/well of Arabidopsis thaliana protein extracted by TCA-acetone precipitation from floral tissue and saturated in 8M urea were separated on 15% SDS-PAGE and blotted for 1hour to 0.2 µm nitrocellulose at 100V using wet transfer system. Blots were blocked with 0.5% cold fish gelatin for 1hr at room temp with agitation. Blot was incubated in the primary antibody at a dilution of 1:2500 for an hour at RT with agitation. The blots were washed with 3X 15min TBS-TT at RT with agitation. Blots as incubated in the secondary antibody (DayLight 800) 1:5000 dilution for 30 min. at RT with agitation and washed 1X with TBSTT for 15 min, 1X with TBST for 15min before scanning with the ODyssey IRD scanner.
