  • Studying Enzyme Activity with Zymography

    In a previous post, I talked about immunostaining and touched on the principles and procedures of Western blotting, a technique that is widely used to quantify protein expression. Now, let’s turn our attention to another powerful molecular tool that is often employed in research laboratories: zymography. Distinct from Western blotting, this technique allows for the […]

  • Quantifying Protein with Indirect Immunostaining

    Recently, I’ve been working as a research assistant in a lab and finally came across the technique of Western blot. I didn’t have any training on this technique because I didn’t take molecular biology lab in my undergraduate career, so I had to learn it on the spot. I decided to write this blog post […]
