Immunoprecipitation

1.    Add 5-10 g of antibody to the cold lysate (total volume of 500l)

2.    Add 20 l of Protein G slurry in prechilled Lysis Buffer

3.    Incubate for 2 hours at 4C on the rotator

4.    Spin the eppendorf tube at 10,000xg for 30 seconds

5.    Carefully remove supernatant completely

6.   Wash the beads 3-5 times with 500 l of Lysis Buffer

7.    Add 50 l of 1X Laemmli sample buffer to bead pellet

8.    Vortex and heat to 90-100C for 10 minutes.

9.    Spin at 10000xg for 5 minutes

10.  Collect supernatant and load onto the gel or freeze
