   From the original kit, you cannot detect the fusion protein.  Sorry. 
However, there is a second (new and improved or so they say, and of course
it will cost more) kit that will be detectable by western, because it uses
different vectors.  Check the 1996 cataloge.

Let me know if you need more help, and I will ask the master tech (or so I
call her) working with this system contact you.
