7 Jul Rocket Immunoelectrophoresis is an adaptation of radial immunodiffusion developed by Laurell. It is also known as electroimmunoassay or. Immunoelectrophoresis is a general name for a number of biochemical methods for separation Rocket immunoelectrophoresis is one-dimensional quantitative immunoelectrophoresis. The method has been used for quantitation of human. When electrophoresis of an antigen is performed in an agarose gel containing the corresponding antibody, a rocket-like immunoprecipitate develops.

The agarose was chosen as the gel matrix because it has large pores allowing free passage and separation of proteins, but provides an anchor for the immunoprecipitates of protein and specific antibodies. Add to My Bibliography.

In this rockeg the proteins are first separated during the first dimension electrophoresis, then instead of the diffusion towards the antibodies, the proteins are electrophoresed into an antibody-containing gel in the second dimension. The end result is a precipitation ‘rocket’ spreading out from the loading well.

Immunoprecipitates may be seen in the rockst agarose gel, but are stained with protein stains like Coomassie Brilliant Blue in the dried gel. Retrieved from ” https: In contrast to SDS- gel electrophoresisthe electrophoresis in agarose allows native conditions, preserving the native structure rodket activities of the proteins under investigation, therefore immunoelectrophoresis allows characterization of enzyme activities and ligand binding etc. The samples to be compared are loaded side-by-side in small circular wells along the edge of an agarose gel that contains the roxket antibody.

The method, originally introduced by Laurell 1 involves a comparison of the sample of unknown concentration with a series of dilutions of a known concentration of the protein, and requires a monospecific antiserum against the protein under investigation.


The high pH was chosen because antibodies are practically immobile at high pH. In the presence of excess antigen, the antigen x;antibody complex is soluble, but as the antigen moves further into the gel, more antigen combines with antibody until a point of equivalence is reached.

The open structure of the immunoprecipitate in the agarose gel will allow additional binding of radioactively labeled antibodies to reveal specific proteins.

Rocket immunoelectrophoresis also referred to as electroimmunoassay is a simple, quick, and reproducible method for determining the concentration of a specific protein in a protein mixture. Fused rocket immunoelectrophoresis is a modification of one-dimensional quantitative immunoelectrophorsis used for detailed measurement of proteins in fractions from protein separation experiments.

These samples antigen are then electrophoresed into the agarose gel where interaction between antigen and antibody takes place. An electrophoresis equipment with a horizontal cooling plate was normally recommended for the electrophoresis. In somewhat chronological order: Immunoelevtrophoresis immunoelectrophoresis immunoelectro;horesis been used for studies of proteins in biological fluids, particularly human serum, and biological extracts.

Crossed immunoelectrophoresis is also called two-dimensional quantitative immunoelectrophoresis ad modum Clarke and Freeman immunoelectropyoresis ad modum Laurell.

This variation has been used for identification of allergens through reaction with IgE. At this stage the antigen x;antibody complex is insoluble. This page was last edited on 21 Novemberat Affinity immunoelectrophoresis has been used for estimation of binding constantsas for instance with lectins or for characterization of proteins with specific immunoelectrphoresis like glycan content or ligand binding.

Immunoelectropboresis immunoelectrophoretic analysis ad modum Grabar is the classical method of immunoelectrophoresis. The method has been used for quantitation of human serum proteins before automated methods became available.

Immunoelectrophoresis – Wikipedia

The methods were developed and used extensively during the second half of the 20th century. Today gel electrophoresis followed by electroblotting is the preferred method for protein characterization because its ease of operation, its high sensitivity, and its low requirement for specific antibodies.

Second they require rather large amounts of polyclonal antibodies. Rocket immunoelectrophoresis is one-dimensional quantitative immunoelectrophoresis.

First they are rather work intensive and require some manual expertise. The introduction of the immunoelectrophoretic analysis gave a great boost to protein chemistry, some of the very first results were the resolution of proteins in biological fluids and biological extracts.

Some variants of affinity immunoelectrophoresis are similar to affinity chromatography by use of immobilized ligands. Immunoelectrophoresis is a general name for a number of biochemical methods for separation and characterization of proteins based on electrophoresis and reaction with antibodies.
