[Histonet] RE: HRP conjugation

From:"C.M. van der Loos"

   Hello Nick,

   I   am   wondering   if   you  could use  a  Mouse-on-mouse  detection
   system for this  purpose. Try  Vector MOM kit or Dako ARKit. These kit
   are definitely much more simpler than "true" HRP-conjugation.

   Hello Everyone,
   This isn't a Histology question, but it relates to antibodies, so I
   thought someone could help me.  I'm doing a western blot, and I'm
   running the protein from mice tumors.  I'm using a mouse primary
   antibody  to  stain  for a particular antigen, but the problem is that
   I apply anti-mouse secondary, it stains everything on the blot
   (presumably because the tumor tissue is rich in mouse IgG antibodies).
   I thought I could get around this by conjugating my primary antibody
   directly to H.R.Peroxidase, thus eliminating the need for a secondary.
   My first question is:
   1. Does this strategy even make sense?
   2. Does anyone have a technique or product for carrying out this

   Thanks for all yo! ur help,
