Abstract

Antigen arrays are fabricated using various antigens such as DNA, histones, synthetic peptides, recombinant proteins, or cell extracts to detect autoantibodies in autoimmune diseases, alloantibodies in transplantation, drug-induced antibodies or cancer-induced antibodies in blood or cell culture supernatant. In this protocol, we will provide a step-by-step executable procedure to perform antigen arrays, including antigen preparation and printing, blocking, sample loading, array detection, imaging, and data analysis.
