Immunodetection of GPA1 (alpha subunit of heterotrimeric G protein). Microsomes were affinity purified to isolate palmitoylated proteins using the acyl biotin exchange method1. Proteins were separated by SDS-PAGE and immunodetected with anti-GPA1. GPA1 is expected to be modified by S-acylation and was enriched in the affinity-purified fraction.

Palmitoylated (S-acylated) proteins were affinity purified from Arabidopsis thaliana using the acyl biotin exchange method1 and separated using SDS-PAGE. Proteins were electro-transferred to PVDF membrane (Millipore, Cat. No. IVPH00010). The membrane was blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk (NFDM) in Tris-buffered saline (TBS) for two hours at room temperature. All incubations were performed with gentle agitation. The membrane was treated with primary antibody (anti-GPA1 [Agrisera, Cat. No. AS12 2370]; 1:7500 in TBS containing 5% NFDM and 0.05% Tween-20) for 2 hours. Blots were quickly rinsed twice with TBS containing 0.05% Tween (TBS-T), then washed five times for 15 minutes each with TBS-T on a shaker. The membrane was treated for 45 minutes with HRP-tagged secondary antibody (Agrisera, Cat. No. AS09 602) diluted 1:10 000 in TBS-T containing 5% non-fat dried milk. Blots were washed 2-3 times for 15 minutes with TBS-T, followed by two 15-minute washes with TBS. Immunolabeled proteins were detected with chemiluminescent detection reagent and imaged using X-ray film.
