The method is based on an absorbance shift of the dye Coomassie Brilliant Blue in which under acidic conditions the red form of the dye is converted into its blue form to bind to the protein being assayed. The formation of the dye-protein complex takes about two minutes and remains stable for an hour, so the procedure is very fast and the time for trial is not limiting.

Bradford Protein Quantification Assay Kit

Our Bradford Protein Quantification Assay Kit is based on the direct binding of Coomassie brilliant blue G-250 dye to proteins at arginine, tryptophan, tyrosine, histidine, and phenylalanine residues. Specifically, the anionic dye binds to these residues producing an absorbance maximum at 595 nm.

The dye interacts with the protein via van der Waals forces between the hydrophobic regions of the protein and the nonpolar region of the dye, and the electrostatic interaction between the negatively charged dye and positively charged amino groups of protein. The formation of the dye-protein complex takes about two minutes and remains stable for an hour, so the procedure is very fast and the time for trial is not limiting. Additionally, the dye-protein complex has a high extinction coefficient, which makes it a very sensitive assay.
It should be pointed that highly alkaline buffers present interference. on the other hand, reagents as magnesium chloride, potassium, sodium, ammonium sulfate and ethanol has no effect on the assay. In addition, other reagents such as Tris, acetic acid, 2-mercaptoethanol, sucrose, glycerol, EDTA and traces of detergents Triton® X-100, sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS) and Hemosol have light effects that can be easily removed.
