Hello everybody,

I want do an ELISA with a (Drosophila) protein expressed in bacteria. 

The protocol I've found in Current Protocols in Mol Biol (p 11.2.18,
Preparation of bacrerial cell lysate antigens) 
is in short:

- resuspend bacterial pellet (from 1ml liquid culture) in 1ml 10mM HEPES

- add 0.2ml lysozyme sol., incubate 5min on ice

- centrifuge and resuspend pellet in 1.2ml TEN (Tris/EDTA/NaCl, pH 7.2)

- add 0.065ml 10% SDS, incubate 10min at 37degrees.

according to the protocol the samples are READY FOR ELISA at this point.

But unfortunately nothing is said about how to dilute the samples. Or
should I use them undiluted? 

any help would be appreciated,
