High impact information on Silver Staining

  • Histological analysis of micrometastases in the lung on day 5 by silver staining of proteins associated with nucleolar organizer regions revealed more metastatic foci and augmented proliferative activity of the tumor cells after rmTNF pretreatment of mice [8].
  • The 150-kD glycoprotein was the only protein from 32D cl 3 cells, which was detectable by silver-staining after a one-step affinity-isolation [9].
  • Quantification by metabolic radiolabeling with [35S]methionine or by silver staining revealed a 3.0-3.5-fold increase in MAP1.2 levels relative to total cell protein after NGF treatment for 2 wk or longer [10].
  • The major SAF protein (PrP33-35) and its normal brain homologue are shown to have the same apparent mol. wt and ionic charge distribution by two-dimensional gel analysis, silver staining and immunoblotting [11].
  • Purpurin and the serum RBP are, however, different molecules, for the serum protein is approximately 3,000 D larger than purpurin and has different silver-staining characteristics [12].

Associations of Silver Staining with chemical compounds

  • Our modified procedure for staining total protein on nitrocellulose is rapid, inexpensive, and as sensitive as silver-staining of polyacrylamide gels [27].
  • The combination of nonequilibrium isoelectric focusing (IEF) in the first dimension, SDS electrophoresis in the second dimension, and very sensitive silver staining techniques resolves more than 250 individual protein spots [28].
  • Selective and sensitive silver staining of extracellular amyloid deposits and intraneuronal neurofibrillary changes can be applied to 50-150 microns thick polyethylene glycol sections and/or 5-15 microns thick paraffin sections [29].
  • During the past two years, the performance of fluorescence-based protein detection methods has demonstrably eclipsed conventional technologies such as colloidal Coomassie Blue and silver staining with respect to detection sensitivity, quantitative accuracy and compatibility with modern protein identification and characterization procedures [30].
  • After being stained with Coomassie Brilliant Blue or a silver-staining solution, each purified enzyme showed a single protein band on polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis in the presence and absence of sodium dodecyl sulfate [31].
