Abstract:   (3212 Views)
Background: Studying protein-protein and protein-DNA interactions are prerequisites for the identification of function and mechanistic role of various proteins in the cell. Protocols for analyzing DNA-based Protein-Protein and Protein-DNA interactions are complicated and need to be simplified for efficient tracking of binding capabilities of various proteins to specific DNA molecules. Here, we demonstrated a simple yet efficient protocol for the identification of DNA coating-based Protein-DNA interaction using antibody-mediated immunodetection.

Methods: Briefly, we have coated specific DNA in the microtiter plate followed by incubating with protein lysate. Specific protein-DNA and/or protein-protein bind with DNA interactions are identified using specific fluorophore-conjugated antibodies. Antibodies are used to detect a protein that is bound to the DNA.

Results: Fluorescent-based detection identifies the specific interaction between Protein-DNA with respect to coated DNA fragments. The protocol uses indirect conjugated antibodies and hence the technique is sensitive for effective identification of Protein-DNA interactions.

Conclusions: Based on the results we conclude that the demonstrated protocol is simple, efficient and sensitive for identification of Protein-DNA interactions.
