A universal approach to prepare reagents for DNA-assisted protein analysis


Yan, Junhong; Gu, Gucci Jijuan; Jost, Christian; Hammond, Maria; Plückthun, Andreas; Landegren, Ulf; Kamali-Moghaddam, Masood (2014). A universal approach to prepare reagents for DNA-assisted protein analysis. PLoS ONE, 9(9):e108061.

Abstract

The quality of DNA-labeled affinity probes is critical in DNA-assisted protein analyses, such as proximity ligation and extension assays, immuno-PCR, and immuno-rolling circle amplification reactions. Efficient, high-performance methods are therefore required for isolation of pure conjugates from reactions where DNA strands have been coupled to antibodies or recombinant affinity reagents. Here we describe a universal, scalable approach for preparing high-quality oligonucleotide-protein conjugates by sequentially removing any unconjugated affinity reagents and remaining free oligonucleotides from conjugation reactions. We applied the approach to generate high-quality probes using either antibodies or recombinant affinity reagents. The purified high-grade probes were used in proximity ligation assays in solution and in situ, demonstrating both augmented assay sensitivity and improved signal-to-noise ratios.
