Two primary antibodies incubated on the blot at the same time - save time in the lab

Western blot using anti-PetA antibodies

Thylakoid membranes (10 µg of total chlorophyll) extracted freshly from Hordeum vulgare leaves with 100 mM HEPES-KOH (pH 7.5), 0.3 M sorbitol, 2 mM EDTA, and 1mM MgCl2 and denatured with a Laemmli buffer at 80°C for 5 min were separated on 12% SDS-PAGE and blotted 1 h to nitrocellulose (pore size of 0.2 um), using semi-dry transfer. Blot was blocked with 4% milk for 2 h/RT with agitation. Blot was incubated in the primary antibody at a dilution of 1:3000 (PC and PetA, simultaneous western blot detection for both antibodies at the same time) for 1 h/RT with agitation in PBS-T. The antibody solution was decanted and the blot was rinsed briefly, then washed 3 times for 5 min in PBS-T at RT with agitation. Blot was incubated in Agrisera matching secondary antibody (anti-rabbit IgG horse radish peroxidase conjugated) diluted to 1:25000 in for 1 h/RT with agitation. The blot was washed as above and developed for 5 min with chemiluminescent detection reagent according to manufactures recommendations. Exposure time was 30 seconds. Simultaneous western blot detection can be applied if MW of detected proteins differs in min. 20 kDa.
