Western blotting is a technique used in molecular biology and biochemistry to detect specific proteins in a sample of tissue homogenate or extract. It involves separating proteins by size using gel electrophoresis, transferring (blotting) them to a membrane, and then detecting the target protein using antibodies that bind specifically to the protein of interest.
This technique allows researchers to identify and quantify proteins based on their size and presence in a sample. It’s widely used in various scientific fields, including biology, medicine, and biotechnology, to study protein expression, investigate diseases, and explore cellular processes.
