Rapid Detection of HiBiT-Tagged Proteins on Blots

The Nano-Glo® HiBiT Blotting System visualizes HiBiT-tagged proteins on blots at subpicogram levels. The reaction uses a detection reagent containing LgBiT Protein, which complements the HiBiT tag to form the luminescent NanoBiT® enzyme.

The blotting system requires as little as 5 minutes to detect HiBiT-tagged proteins on a nitrocellulose membrane. Standard antibody-based blotting protocols can take multiple hours to detect the protein of interest.

Simple Antibody-Free Detection Workflow

Using the Nano-Glo® HiBiT Blotting System, any HiBiT-tagged proteins can be visualized on membranes following gel separation. The blotting reagent, which contains the LgBiT Protein and furimazine substrate, is added directly to the membrane, and a luminescent signal is produced only where HiBiT is present.

This simple method requires as few as 5 minutes to perform in contrast to the multiple hours and many steps needed for standard antibody-based blotting protocols. Because luminescence is only produced only where HiBiT is present, background is minimal.

Rapid, Bioluminescent HiBiT Blotting Protocol

Sensitive Visualization of Blotted Proteins

HiBiT-tagged proteins can be detected at subpicogram quantities using the Nano-Glo® HiBiT Blotting System. This means the system is sensitive enough to detect proteins at endogenous expression levels.

  • Verify molecular weight of HiBiT-tagged proteins
  • Identify expression of splice variants
  • Quickly screen transient transfections or CRISPR knock-ins

Real-World Example: Using CRISPR Gene Editing to Add HiBiT to Endogenous Genes

Learn how the tiny 11-amino-acid luminescent tag called HiBiT can quantify protein abundance even at endogenous levels. CRISPR-mediated gene editing was used add the HiBiT tag to several endogenous genes, including HIF1α, and quantified protein levels in response to various stimuli.
