Western blot using anti-RD N-terminal arginylation antibodies 

Dotblot of peptide variants probed with anti-RD antibodies1. The respective volumes of a 0.1 mM aqueous peptide solution were mixed with each 1 µl of 0.1% SDS in 0.5 M Na-PO4 (according to Canas et al. 1993, Anal Biochem. 211), dried in a vacuum concentrator and reconstituted in 1 µl of H2O. The peptide solutions were spotted onto a PVDF membrane and air-dried overnight. The dried membrane was subjected to semi-dry western blot electrotransfer (0.85 mA/cm2, 3 min), blocked with 4% skim milk powder in TBST overnight and probed with anti-RD antibody (at 0.4 µg/ml in TBST) and subsequently with HRP coupled anti-sheep antibody. Detection with ECL substrate of femtogram sensitivity, 3 min exposure time.

SPOT assay with anti-Arg-RD21 antibody

SPOT assay with anti-RD antibody. 11- to 17mer peptides of the indicated sequences were synthesized on a PEG-derivatized cellulose membrane. The SPOT membrane was blocked overnight in TBST (50 mM TRIS-HCl, pH = 7.9; 0.15 M NaCl; 0.1% Tween-20) containing 7.5% skim milk powder. The next day, purified anti-Arg-RD21 was incubated with the membrane in TBST at 0.4 µg/ml for 1 hour under agitation at room temperature. Subsequently, the membrane was washed 3x 10min in TBST and electrotransferred to a PVDF membrane (30min, 0.54 mA per cm2; blotting system according to Kyhse-Andersen 1984, J Biochem Biophys Methods 10(3-4)). Immobilized antibody was probed with HRP coupled anti-sheep secondary antibody and detected with ECL substrate of picogram sensitivity and 3 min exposure time. Letters in the grid represent N-terminal amino acids in 1st and 2nd position; grey background: variants of the peptide antigen used by Wong et al. 2007, PLoS Biol. 5(10).

Additional information

Additional information Antibodies are purified using substactive purification method.

MG132 or epoxomycin are recommended to use to inhibit proteasome and significantly increase signal from the arginylated proteins.

For exact protocol of dot blot and SPOT assay, please inquire.

Background Arginylation is a post-translational modification of an existing peptide chain by addition of an extra arginine. This modification changes primary sequence of protein as well as it's surface change. It is mediated by arginyltransferase ATE1. Arginylation plays an essential role in multiple physiological pathways, for example, in vivo arginylation constitutes a mechanism for degradation of preprocessed proteins or proteolytic fragments that bear Asp and Glu on their N-termini.
