Abstract

An immunoradiometric assay (IRMA) system was performed to quantify the recombinant CrylA(b) protein produced by transgenic sugarcane lines. The method allowed detection of 0.1-1 ng CrylA(b) per 25 μg of soluble protein in leaf extracts from plants transformed with an expression vector containing a truncated version of the crylA(G) gene from Bacillus thuringiensis. The technique was based upon the use of radioiodinated immunopurified antibodies specific to natural CrylA proteins in a one-step sandwich procedure by direct simultaneous incubation of the leaf extracts with the detecting antibody solution. This IRMA system provides a simple routine method to quantify the CrylA proteins in transgenic plants with different expression levels. We suggest that the methodology presented herein may become an efficient tool to quantify heterologous or native plant proteins, present at low levels in tissue extracts.
