Positive Control

293FT cells transduced with eGFP virus

Negative Control

untransduced 293FT cells


A major band was observed at the correct molecular weight in the two positive (eGFP-transduced) cell lysates. No major bands were observed in the negative control (untransduced cells). Some additional faint bands of lower molecular weight were also observed in the positive controls, this may be because the antibody was used at 1:500 instead of the recommended 1:1000 dilution. Microscope images of transduced cells are provided to demonstrate successful eGFP-transduction of cells.

  • 20 µg of total protein from prepared cell lysates was run on a 4-12% SDS-PAGE gel.
  • The gel was run at 180 V for 40 minutes and transferred to a PVDF membrane using a wet-transfer apparatus.
  • The membrane was rinsed in TBST for 10 min in TBST.
  • The membrane was blocked in 3% BSA for 30 min.
  • The membrane was incubated in 1:500 primary antibody diluted in 3% BSA at 4°C overnight.
  • The membrane was washed 3 times for 10 min in TBST.
  • The membrane was incubated in secondary antibody at 1:10000 for 1 hr at RT.
  • The membrane was washed 3 times for 10 min in TBST.
  • The membrane was imaged using a fluorescent imaging system at 679nm⁄702nm.

Experimental Notes
