Co-Immunoprecipitation Protein Interaction Analysis Service

    Immunoprecipitation (IP) technology is a method widely used in antigen purification and detection, which separates specific proteins from a solution by utilizing antibodies that can bind to the proteins. The technique involves removing antibody-protein complexes from the solution by adding insoluble forms of antibodies (such as those conjugated with agarose beads or the recently popularized magnetic beads coupled with Protein A/G). IP utilizes antigen-specific antibodies to isolate target antigens from complex antigen solutions, followed by analysis of the quantity and size of antibody-reactive antigens present in the complex protein mixture using SDS-PAGE. IP enables researchers to measure the molecular weight and quantity of a given protein in protein mixtures, identify protein activation states and post-translational modifications, and capture protein-binding partners. IP assays can detect interactions between target proteins and other proteins or nucleic acids, of which co-immunoprecipitation (Co-IP) is commonly used for the detection of target proteins. 


    Co-IP is a powerful technique widely employed in discovering and detecting protein-protein interactions. The principle of Co-IP involves pulling down target proteins using antigen-antibody interactions to infer the proteins interacting with the target. Specifically, the antibody of the target protein is immobilized on affinity resin, exposed to a designed protein mixture or cell lysate, and proteins or protein complexes that strongly interact with the target protein are co-precipitated. The identities and quantities of these interacting proteins can be identified through subsequent mass spectrometry-based interaction proteomics analysis methods.
