To perform a Western blot under reducing conditions simply include a reducing agent such as dithiothreitol (DTT) or β-mercaptoethanol in the SDS sample buffer. These reducing agents act to disrupt any disulfide bonds. The 150 kDa IgG molecule, for example, will be separated into 2x heavy (~50 kDa) and 2x light chains (~25 kDa). more
