Co-immunoprecipitation (Co-IP) is a popular technique to identify physiologically relevant protein-protein interactions by using target protein-specific antibodies to indirectly capture proteins that are bound to a specific target protein. These protein complexes can then be analyzed to identify new binding partners, binding affinities, the kinetics of binding and the function of the target protein.
