Arabidopsis thaliana leaf extract (see below for extraction method) 10 µl: Arabidopsis plants were exposed to strong light 1000 µmol photons m-2 s-1 for 24 hours at 6 degrees. 2. Arabidopsis leaf extract (see below for extraction method) 10 µl: Arabidopsis plants were exposed to strong light 1000 umol photons m-2 s-1 for 24 hours at 25°C. Extraction methods: 50 mg leaf material was ground with the grinding buffer (2% lithium dodecyl sulfate, 0.35 M sucrose, 100 mM dithiothreitol, 50 mM Tris HCl pH 8). No denaturing step: Extracts were centrifuged for 5 min at 15 000 rpm using a microcentrifuge. 10 µl of protein extracts per lane was resolved on 14% SDS-PAGE. Proteins were blotted on PVDF membranes using wet (tank) transfer. Blots were blocked with blocking buffer (PBS containing 0.2% tween and 4% skim milk) for 1 hour. Blots were incubated in the primary antibody solution (1:5000) for 1 hour at 25°C. Blots were rinsed with PBS-T for 5 min, and the rinsing steps were repeated four times. The secondary antibody (anti-rabbit IgG-conjugated HRP) diluted 20 000 times. Blots were rinsed with PBS-T for 5 min, and the rinsing steps were repeated four times. Finally, blots were incubated with Western Lightning Plus (Perkin Elmer) Exposed with a CCD camera-equipped detector for 30 min.

About 30 µg of total protein from Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, extracted with pre-cooled buffer (10% glycerol, 20 mM HEPES, 5 mM MgCl2, 2.5 mM EDTA, 10 mM KCl, 1 mM PMSF, 0,5% DTT; pH=7,4) and denatured with SDS/mercaptoethanol loading buffer at 95C for 5 min, were separated on 12% SDS-PAGE and blotted at 60V for 2,5h to nitrocellulose membrane using tank transfer. Blots were blocked with 0.2% Tween-20 in TBS (overnight, at 5OC) with agitation. Blot was incubated in the primary antibody at a dilution of 1:500 in TBS-T (0.05% Tween-20 in TBS) overnight at 5OC with agitation. The antibody solution was decanted and the blot was rinsed briefly twice, then washed 3 times for 10 min in TBS at RT with agitation. Blot was incubated in secondary antibody (anti-rabbit IgG horse radish peroxidase conjugated, from goat) diluted 1:15 000 in TBS-T, for 2h at RT with agitation. The blot was washed as above and developed using *DAB/H2O2 mixture in TBS for approximately 5 min.
* DAB = 3,3'-Diaminobenzidine

Min. 30 µg of total protein has to be loaded per lane. Please note that level of Elip proteins varies considerably between different plant species and therefore protein load/well has to be adjusted.
Early light-induced proteins (ELIPs) are light stress-induced proteins related to the chlorophyll a/b binding protein family from higher plants and green algae located in the thylakoid membranes and involved in photosynthesis.
