Simple Western Assays for Detection of ACE2 and TMPRSS2, Key Players in SARS-CoV-2 Infection

Application Notes

Application Notes Summary

Default Literature Icon

In this Application Note, we demonstrate how Simple Western can be applied for the detection and characterization of ACE2 and TMPRSS2, key players in SARS-CoV-2 infection. As an open platform, any commercial or custom antibody may be used for target protein detection on Simple Western. Here, we used an anti-ACE2 antibody from R&D Systems and an anti-TMPRSS2 antibody from Novus Biologicals to develop immunodetection assays for these proteins in purified form and expressed in human cells. This resulted in assays that were highly sensitive over a large dynamic range, providing molecular weight information and even quantification in a human cells.
