Analysis of the phosphorylation status of the p70S6K via phospho-flow technique provides reliable information on the extent of mTOR inhibition exerted by sirolimus, and the result is comparable to the Western blotting method.
In addition, the HMW adiponectin values obtained with this method and with a more conventional size-exclusion and Western blotting method are well correlated (r = 0.96) over a wide range of HMW adiponectin concentrations; however, there is a 23% difference in the absolute values, which is not surprising considering the 2 very different methodologies.
First we measured the serum and salivary CA VI concentrations from four subjects at 3-h intervals during a 24-h period with a time-resolved immunofluorometric assay, and then confirmed the presence of CA VI in serum by using a sensitive Western blotting method with chemiluminescent substrate.
