protein interaction

HELP! :?:
Does anyone know the methods which can detect the interaction between proteins the most accurately?

haven't done either of them, but i think co-immunoprecipitation is easier to do. Less places where you can screw up the protocol.

I have tried the 2-hybrid before, it was not too complicated in fact. but at last I didn't get the result I was expecting for. maybe it was because my proteins are secreted protein, we know for 2-hybrid, the reporter genes can only be motivated when the two proteins of interest banding to the AD and BD separately enter into the nuclear. so maybe the 2-hybrid has some limits I think.

For the Co-IP, we need anti-bodies for the proteins we want to test, which may take some time. in order to avoid producing the anti-bodies, I chose to tag my proteins with different tags (3HA,GST,GFP,Myc...), and so I can use the antibody anti-tags which can be purchased from the bio-companies. but now I have a big problem with taging my protein, I am also looking for the solutions now.

I have a paper concerning of the Co-IP, with a detail protocol.

I hope that there are something you needs.
