Some prrinciple of affinity immunoelectrophoresis are similar to affinity chromatography by use of immobilized ligands. The track on the left shows agarose gel serum electrophoresis SPE.

The enlarged arc that also shows a distortion is illustrated by the red arrow. Proteins are separated by electrophoresis, then antibodies are applied in a trough next to the separated proteins and immunoprecipitates are formed after a period of diffusion of the separated proteins and antibodies against each other.


Hickman PE and Koerbin, G. Migration is towards the positive electrode at the bottom.

Normal serum imumnoelectrophoresis which serves as a control C or a sample from the patient P is placed in the sample well of appropriate strips, as indicated. The antisera are layered separately over each lane. Follow us on Facebook. To the left serum agarose protein electrophoresis SPE illustrates the migration of serum proteins. Diagnostic immunology Nephelometry Complement fixation test Immunocytochemistry Immunohistochemistry Direct fluorescent antibody Epitope mapping Skin allergy priniple Patch test.

Biochemistry methods Electrophoresis Molecular biology Protein methods Laboratory techniques Immunologic tests. The same band can be seen in the SPE gel before fixation red arrow. Affinity immunoelectrophoresis has been used for estimation of binding constantsas for instance with lectins or for characterization of proteins with specific features like glycan content or ligand binding. The direction of migration is down towards the positive electrode.


This page was last immjnoelectrophoresis on 21 Novemberat This is because the amount of protein antigen decreases from the centre of the band so that there is antigen excess in the centre but equivalency of antibody and antigen concentration towards the edges, causing less reaction in the centre and more towards the periphery.

For comparison, prjnciple track to the right shows a true Bence Jones protein.

The thick band just below the origin represents a highly concentrated monoclonal free light chain. Chromatin immunoprecipitation Immunodiffusion Ouchterlony double immunodiffusion Radial immunodiffusion Immunoelectrophoresis Counterimmunoelectrophoresis. This variation has been used for identification of allergens through reaction with IgE.

The abnormal protein bands identified on IFE line up with bands seen on routine agarose electrophoresis making interpretation simpler. Immunoprecipitation Chromatin immunoprecipitation Immunodiffusion Ouchterlony double immunodiffusion Radial immunodiffusion Immunoelectrophoresis Counterimmunoelectrophoresis. Affinity immunoelectrophoresis is based on changes in the electrophoretic pattern of proteins through specific interaction or complex formation with other macromolecules or ligands.

Proteins in large concentration can cause prozoning on IFE causing more difficulty in interpretation. An electrophoresis equipment with a horizontal cooling plate was normally recommended for the electrophoresis. The methods were developed and used extensively during the second half of the 20th century.

Today gel electrophoresis followed by electroblotting is the preferred method for protein characterization because its ease of operation, its high sensitivity, and its low requirement for specific antibodies. Join us on Twitter Follow tweets on recent articles eLifeSciences. The agarose was chosen as the gel matrix because it has large pores allowing free passage and separation of proteins, but provides an anchor for the immunoprecipitates of protein and specific antibodies.


Two factors determine that immunoelectrophoretic methods are not widely used. Symbols and abbreviations are the same as in Figure. The circles at the bottom of the gels represent control wells where antigen and antibody are placed to ensure there is a reaction.

Notice, the band looks like a donut.

Tansley reviews Read the latest Tansley reviews from New Phytologist. Polyclonal immunoglobulins are illustrated by the speckled pattern and specific protein by the solid bands.

Notice that as the urine is diluted, a thinned out donut starts to develop because the antigen concentration is too high so that little reaction occurs with the fixation antibody. Each patient arc is compared with the control arc on the other side of the respective trough immunoslectrophoresis Figure a for an actual illustration.

The sensitivity and resolving power of crossed immunoelectrophoresis is than that of the classical immunoelectrophoretic analysis and there are multiple variations of the technique useful for various purposes. Sheldon J and Riches P Capillary electrophoresis for investigation of proteins in biological fluids.

References Bence Jones H Papers on chemical pathology: In this method the proteins are first separated during the first dimension electrophoresis, then instead of prinviple diffusion towards the antibodies, the proteins are electrophoresed into an antibody-containing gel in the second dimension.

TV, represents a trough containing trivalent antisera:
