Development of an Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay for the Detection of GM Proteins in Transgenic Crops/Produce
Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays are always being used extensively for the identification of genetically modified protein in transgenic crops/produce. With the advancement in the detection strategies, competitive and sandwich immunoassays are more convenient and sensitive for the GM protein detection and its quantification in transgenic crops. This chapter is focusing on the competitive ELISA including sandwich ELISA for the detection of the GM proteins.
