western blot using anti-TIC40 antibodies

10-15µg of chlorophyll from isolated total plant material (Arabidopsis thaliana), chloroplasts and thylakoids extracted with a buffer containing (25 mM Tricine-NaOH, pH 7.8, 330 mM sorbitol, 1 mM EDTA, 10 mM KCl, 0.15% [w/v] bovine serum albumin, 4 mM sodium ascorbate, and 7 mM L-Cys) were separated on 12 % SDS-PAGE and blotted 1h to PVDF using semi-dry transfer. Blots were blocked with 10% milk for 1h at room temperature (RT) with agitation. Blot was incubated in the primary antibody at a dilution of 1: 2 000 overnight at 4⁰C with agitation. The antibody solution was decanted and the blot was rinsed briefly twice, then washed once for 15 min and 3 times for 5 min in TBS-T at RT with agitation. Blot was incubated in secondary antibody (anti-rabbit IgG horse radish peroxidase conjugated, from Agrisera AS09 602) diluted to 1:15 000 in TBS-T for 1h at RT with agitation. The blot was washed as above and developed for 60 seconds with a ImageQuant system from GE Healthcare, exposure time was 60 seconds.

western blot using anti-Tic40 antibodies on Physcomitrella

Lanes 1-6: 20μg 21kxg pellet from whole Physcomitrella patens protonemata extract (1), 20μg 21kxg supernatant from whole protonemata extract (2), 20μg broken chloroplasts/thylakoids from 40% Percoll band (3), 20μg intact chloroplasts from 80% Percoll band (4), 10μg pellet material from Percoll gradient (including whole cells and enriched for nuclei) (5), 20μg whole protonemata extract (6)

Sample Preparation Up to 20µg of total protein/chloroplast material from P. patens was prepared by chopping the protonemata into an ice cold isotonic chloroplast buffer (0.3M D-sorbitol, 50mM Hepes-KOH pH8.0, 2mM EDTA, 1mM MgCl2 with additives: 0.1% BSA and PVP-10 and added protease inhibitor tablet). The extract was filtered through a 70μm filter and chloroplasts were pelleted at 250 xg 4°C 5 min then layered onto discontinuous 10, 40, 80% Percoll gradients (which employed the same buffer) and centrifuged at 9k xg 4°C 1h. Broken chloroplasts/thylakoids and chloroplasts, respectively, were recovered from the 40 and 80% bands after centrifugation at 9k xg 4°C 1h by centrifugation at 1k xg in four volumes of buffer (without additives). Samples were frozen at -20°C. Samples were thawed on ice and were diluted in 50mM Tricine pH7.6, 1mM β-mercaptoethanol, 1mM MgCl2 with protease inhibitor tablet for protein concentration determinations and aliquots of up to 20 µg were prepared in 0.8 x Laemmli sample buffer and denatured at 95°C 5 min and were separated on 10-20% Criterion stain free SDS-PAGE and blotted 7 min to PVDF using BioRAD mini Turbo blot semi-dry transfer. Blots were blocked O/N at 4°C with agitation in 10% milk powder in PBS. Blot was rinsed in PBS-T 3 times for 5 min thenincubated in the primary antibody at a dilution of 1: 1 000 for anti-Toc75 or 1 in 2000 for antiTic40 for 2h at RT with agitation in 0.5% milk powder in PBS-T. The antibody solution was decanted and the blot was rinsed briefly twice, then washed once for 15 min and 3 times for 5 min in PBS-T at RT with agitation. Blot was incubated in secondary antibody (anti-rabbit IgG horse radish peroxidase conjugated, from an unknown source but labelled NIF824) diluted to 1:2,500 in for 1h at RT with agitation in 0.5% milk powder in PBS-T. The blot was washed as above and developed for 10min with chemiluminescent detection reagent. Exposure time was 30 min.

Tic40 is a component of the inner envelope membrane import complex (TIC) of plant chloroplasts. Tic40 has been proposed to function as a co-chaperone in the stromal chaperone complex that facilitates protein translocation across the inner membrane. Tic40 can be used as a cellular [compartment marker] for chloroplast inner envelope membrane.
