Covalent attachment of peptides to membranes for dot-blot analysis of glycosylation sites and epitopes

Anal Biochem. 1993 Jun;211(2):179-82. doi: 10.1006/abio.1993.1253.


Noncovalent binding of proteins to membranes is often employed for dot-blot analysis with various visualization techniques. These techniques are usually not applicable to peptide dot-blot analysis due to peptide wash-off during the staining procedure. As exemplified with a synthetic peptide and peptides produced by proteolysis of a protein, it is possible to achieve efficient covalent attachment to Immobilon-AV membranes. The utility of this membrane has been demonstrated with immunostaining and carbohydrate staining procedures.
