Reliable, Streamlined 2-D Western Blot Workflow for Evaluation of Antibodies Developed for Detection of Host Cell Proteins

Removing host cell protein (HCP) contaminants represents an essential step in the production of biologics (therapeutic protein drugs), but has long been a time- and labor-intensive process. Here, we demonstrate a simpler, quicker, and more standardized workflow for evaluating anti-HCP antibodies using 2-D electrophoresis and western blotting.

TGX Stain-Free™ Precast Gels Facilitate LDL Research on Potential New Drug Targets

When Dr. Fred Bauzon started his research, he worked with bioinformatics specialists to functionalize suitable gene candidates based on their expression levels with HMGCR transcript levels. All his experiments demonstrated a reduction in low-density lipoprotein receptor protein (LDLR) and candidate gene protein levels after the candidate gene was silenced. Here Bauzon discusses how TGX Stain-free precast gels have aided his research toward future drug targets for the therapeutic control of LDL uptake.
