ELISA and GFP (green fluorescent protein)

Post by rindishy » Tue Apr 03, 2007 11:47 pm

Hi. I'm trying to revise and downloaded a lecture I missed. Its about using antibodies to detect antigens and cell structures etc.

In the notes, it describes ELISA as a method to detect and quantify antigens using enzyme conjugated antibodies. The next slide then talks about GFP.
I don't know if the ELISA part is linked to GFP, and if GFP is a component of the ELISA process. Basically, are the GFP slides something to do with ELISA?

Do the two have something to do with each other? Or do I revise them seperately.

GFP is green fluorescent protein
ELISA is an acronym for enzyme linked immunosorbent assay.

... and I would guess that they're not related.

ELISA is the method, while GFP is the substance. You can detect GFP using ELISA method.
