Well come on Toshiharu, did it work? You've got me on tenterhooks. Can
you see glowing cells?

BTW you can get the antibody to B Gal from Sigma, amongst others, why
not use this and use an FITC labelled secondary? Why are you doing the
assay on cell extracts. Why not do it on the cells themselves, so you
can see what you're transfection efficiency. Email me if you want a

Lets have some results on the Net!
