I wonder if anyone might be able to give me some advice about how to go about
setting up an ELISA: I'm looking at fairly subtle changes in membrane protein
expression (SGLT1 transporter) in intestinal tissue samples. I have been doing
Western blots, and quantifying with densitometry, but I want to try to get
slightly more quantitative results. My initial main concern is the protein
extraction. Up till now, I've been using triton X in lysis buffer. Will this
interfere with the ELISA, and do I need to find a different extraction buffer
for extracting the protein? Alternatively, does anyone know if I can remove
detergent from the samples?

With many thanks!
