Virus research using GFP

Posted by Dr. Astrid Sitte on Mar 26, 2020 1:05:30 PM

An extract of the published literature since 2016

This blog provides references from the last 4 years in virus research using GFP. Most publications report how immunoprecipitation (IP)/Co-IP of GFP-fusions was conducted to identify host cell binding partners of virus proteins. In addition, mass spectrometry analysis and functional assays have been performed.

How to obtain a low background in immunoprecipitation assays

Posted by Dr. Astrid Sitte on Mar 10, 2020 2:02:57 PM


A high background from unspecific binding of proteins is a common problem in immunoprecipitation (IP). In this blog, the origin of background and different optimization strategies are discussed. Furthermore, it is shown how you can achieve a low background when using the ChromoTek GFP-Trap®, a ready to use reagent for IP of a GFP-tagged proteins.
