Protein, nonconjugated with PS beads after labeling, does not emit the fluorescence but binds to the receptor specifically so that it impedes the specific binding between the ideally conjugated protein with PS beads and receptor, followed by decreasing the accuracy and reliability in the molecules' analyzing and tracking process (Figure 1(a)).
If the conjugated protein forms a complex with another biomolecule, e.g., by affinity recognition, then the complex will also be selectively precipitated from solution (Fig.
We estimated the extent of HDI coupling to protein from the number of amino groups on the conjugated protein that remained available for reaction with 2,4,6-trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (TNBS; Sigma Co.) after HDI treatment.
