I see no reason why not.

Hmm.. Well we know that blanks have a negative effect on Warp entities/Psykers in the Material Plane, but what effect they would have upon Daemons (as an example) in the Warp itself is up for debate.

Well the Sisters of Silence were Blanks right? They fought alongside the Emperor during the Great Crusade. They also fought in the Webway against the hordes of Daemons that threatened to over-run the Imperial Palace - and lost. This leads me to suggest that there 'Blank' effect is not all that powerful against Daemons.

As for what effect they would have on the Emperor in his 'current' state? I imagine that the Emperor is too powerful a Psyker to be effected by Blanks.

Not that I am aware of. Blanks have an effect on non-Psykers aswell, in fact they have an effect on everyone/everything with a Warp Presence, If there were any among the Astartes Recruiting Worlds they would probably be killed or recruited by the various Imperial Organisations that makes use of them.
