Reagents in Protein Purification The key to successful protein purification is choosing the correct process and the correct media and reagents. Although purification can sometimes be a simple one-step precipitation, multiple step processes are more frequently required to attain the desired purity.
Protein purification is a series of processes intended to isolate a single type of protein from a complex mixture. Protein purification is vital for the characterization of the function, structure and interactions of the protein of interest. The starting material is usually a biological tissue or a microbial culture. The various steps in the purification process may free the protein...
