Something that is kind of unusual turned up in the current Analytical
Biochemistry that may be of interest to protein blotting people.  In the paper,
the authors claim to be able to do Western blots onto Xerox paper (that's
right, plain copier paper) which had been pre-treated with methanol.  They show
very nice Westerns probed with antibody, and claim 3-fold sensitivity over PVDF
membrane.  Anyone have a comment on this? (I'm a DNA/RNA blot person, so I am
not qualified to assess this method).
