The 10 μg of soluble protein extracts from 3 -week old Solanum tuberosum (1), one -week old seedlings of Lupinus angustifolius (2), Pisum sativum (3) , Zea mays L . (4) and Hordeum vulgare (5) leaves were extracted with buffer containing 50 м M Hepes- KOH, pH 7.5, 330 м M sorbitol, 2 м M EDTA, 1 м M MgCl 2, 5 м M ascorbate, 0.05% BSA . All samples were mixed with sample buffer, denatured for 5 min at 70°C and separated on 10% Tricine -SDS -PAGE . Proteins were blotted 30 min to HybondTM -PVDF membrane (Amersham Life Science) using semi -transfer (Bio -Rad) in standard transfer buffer in presence of 20% methanol. Transfer of proteins to the membrane was checked using 1% Ponceau S staining before the blocking step. Blots were blocked in buffer (5% low -fat milk in 1xPBS, 0. 1% Tween) with for 60 min at room temperature (RT) with agitation. Blots were incubated in the primary antibody at a dilution of 1: 5 000 at RT 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 P BS -T at RT with agitation. Blot was incubated in secondary antibody
(goat anti -rabbit IgG, AS09 602, Agrisera ) diluted to 1 :50 000 for 1h at RT with agitation. The blot was washed as above and developed for 5 min with Clarity Western ECL Substrate and ChemiDoc detection system (Bio-Rad).
Total cell extracts of Solanum tuberosum (1), Lupinus angustifolius (2), Pisum sativum (3), Zea mays L. (4), Hordeum vulgare (5), were separated in conditions as described above. Marker - P restained SDS -PAGE ( Bio Rad, kat # 1610318). Monomers are marked by arrow. Exposure 30 seconds. For visualization of monomers, longer exposure time was applied.

Antibody can be used to check qubiquitination status in the whole plant extracts.
Technical note: It is very difficult to detect ubiquitin monomers in total cell extracts due to a great abundance of poly and multi-ubiquitinated proteins. Recommended is size separation of protein extracts before gel electrophoresis focused on good resolution of region between 6-10 kDa.
Ubiquitin is a highly conserved regulatory protein expressed in all eukaryotic tissues. Originally this protein was called: Ubiquitous Immunopoietic Polypeptide. Its function is labeling of proteins for degradation through ubiquitin proteasome system (UPS).
