How to determine protein stoichiometry

In this application note, BMG LABTECH has successfully adapted the Job plot to a microplate reader-based system, such as the CLARIOstar® Plus, to characterize and assess protein-protein interaction stoichiometry. This method enables the use of small sample volume and improved throughput, as up to four protein pairs can be studied in one 384-well plate.
