Any scientist involved in proteomics or protein engineering, will stand by the fact that detergents are indispensable tools for isolation and solubilization of integral membrane proteins and protein complexes from biological membranes. For these studies, it is very important to have intact protein structures in their native biological form in order to evaluate their structure, function, dynamics and binding of...
1. What are Bio Detergents? Detergents are soluble amphiphilic molecules that are able to incorporate to liposomes and cell membranes. They are essential tools for the study of biological membranes, as they are frequently used to solubilize membrane proteins and to investigate the interactions among membrane lipid components. 2. What are the different types of biological detergents? Ionic detergents...
A non-ionic detergent intended for solubilizing membrane-bound proteins in theirnative state and for the preparation of lipid vesicles. Its well defined chemical structure, small uniform micelles and high water solubility make it superior to most other non-ionic detergent for membrane solubilization.
