The Signal-Seeker™ line of produts have been developed to allow simple analysis of key regulatory protein modifications by specialists and non-specialists alike. The comprehensive Signal-Seeker™ kits provide an affinity bead system to isolate and enrich modified proteins from any given cell or tissue lysate. The enriched protein population is then analyzed by standard western blot procedures using a primary antibody to the target protein.

Application 1: Investigate significant SUMOylation 1 events
Immunoprecipitating total SUMO1 profiles using the Signal-Seeker™ SUMOylation 1 Detection Kit compared to older SUMO1 tools
(A) HAP1 wildtype (WT) or SUMO1 knockout (KO) lysate, was obtained using BlastR lysis and filter system. 1 mg of each lysate were incubated with 40 µg of each SUMO1 affinity reagent: ASM11-beads (Cytoskeleton), 21C7 (Invitrogen—purified), 21C7 (DSHB—supernatant), D11-beads (Santa Cruz) and conjugated SUMO1 IgG control beads (CIG03). 21C7 antibodies were captured with protein G agarose beads to enrich for SUMO-1 modified proteins. Samples were separated by SDS-PAGE and transferred to PVDF. Enriched SUMO1 samples were analyzed by western blot using ASM01 (Cytoskeleton) antibody at 1:5000, and mouse Trubelot Ultra-HRP secondary at 1:1000 in 5% milk. Trueblot secondary was used to minimize heavy and light chain detection from 21C7 samples.
(B): IP was performed using ASM11 as in Fig 1A. SUMO1 modified proteins were visualized with ASM01 1:5000, and anti-mouse secondary at 1:20,000 to highlight the profile of SUMOylated proteins in the region between 64-30 kDa that may be masked by heavy and light chain interference when using unconjugated antibodies for IP.
Immunoprecipitating SUMO1 modified target proteins using the Signal-Seeker™ SUMOylation 1 Detection Kit compared to older SUMO1 tools
HAP1 wildtype (WT) or SUMO1 knockout (KO) lysate, was obtained using BlastR lysis and filter system. 1 mg of each lysate were incubated with 40 µg of each SUMO1 affinity reagent: ASM11-beads (Cytoskeleton), 21C7 (DSHB—supernatant), and conjugated SUMO1 IgG control beads (CIG03). 21C7 antibodies were captured with protein G agarose beads to enrich for SUMO-1 modified proteins. Samples were separated by SDS-PAGE and transferred to PVDF. Target proteins: (A) TFII-I, RanGAP1, and (B) schmd1 were analyzed for their SUMO1 modified forms by western blot. Anti-rabbit-HRP labeled secondary antibody was used at 1:10,000. All three primary antibodies are rabbit polyclonal antibodies, and should not bind heavy and light chain fragments from the IP antibody.
