    HAHA.

    I WIN.

    After months.

    MONTHS.

    Of optimizing you.

    Of running failed after failed experiment at differing conditions and getting nothing but a large smear on my membrane.

    I HAVE EMERGED VICTORIOUS.

    I have run you on a test strip.

    And gotten the right bands at the right locations with no background.

    ALL I HAD TO DO WAS HATE MY LIFE FOR 10 MONTHS AND WORK WITH YOU.

    Now, onto you, isoforms 1b/c and 2a/b of various postsynaptic density proteins.

    I will vanquish you too.

    Now I know why I'm glad to have a PhD in Neuroscience without ever having run a gel (or a blot, or whatever) in my life. More power to you, though. You'll probably find that things will move a lot faster after this apparent breakthrough.

    :laugh:

    Most of the stuff I've done so far are non-molecular and I've never done a blot. But I'm definitely not ruling out doing some molecular stuff for the PhD. I know I'm clumsy when it comes to pipetting and some wet-lab techniques, so that post really doesn't bode well for me.

    Man was background your problem? just block for a lot longer than the protocol says..i did it for o/n as opposed to 1 hour and ever since then its worked WONDERS - hardly any background at all

    Just remember this success the next time you feel like your PI is exaggerating about how how well you're doing just to "be nice." And congrats. :)
