Western blot (WB), also called immunoblot, uses specific antibodies to analyze one protein in a sample containing multiple proteins. Proteins are separated from each other by size using gel electrophoresis, then transferred to a membrane and detected with a specific antibody. This technique is widely used in biological research, as it provides information about the molecular weight of a protein as well as relative differences in expression between samples.
