Binding curves and non-specific samples

Postby fcs » Fri Dec 24, 2010 9:02 pm


When trying to plot binding curves such as competitive binding curves, is the non-specific binding (NSB) sample required?

I think it's good, because you can say "OK, if there is nonspecific binding e.g. by albumin (or whatever), it's just 3%, while with the same amount of my protein it is 20%, so it's probably specific" ;)

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
