Production of Highly Specific Polyclonal Antibodies Using a Combination of 2D Electrophoresis and Nitrocellulose-Bound Antigen

Highly specific antibodies directed against minor proteins, present in small amounts in biological fluids, or against nonsoluble cytoplasmic or membraneous proteins, are often difficult to obtain. The main reasons for this are the small amounts of protein available after the various classical purification processes and the low purity of the proteins.
