how to decrease the degradation of protein in purificaton

Postby wangzhy » Wed Nov 11, 2009 10:54 pm

Hello !
I am working on purification of a human protein in Ecoli, about 100 kD . his-taged. I have tried so many method to decrease the degradation of protein in purification ,such as , low temp induce, all process on ice , protein protease inbihitor,but the degradation is still severe.So I will appreciate that if you anyone can give me a suggesion to decrease the degradation. Thank you very much.

How do you know, it is degraded? Are you sure, it is produced at all? That it's not put into inclusion bodies? Do you have correct activity measurement (including reall substrates etc.)?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

thanks for your reply, I have checked by Westernblotting and found it is degradation exactly.

Proteins smaller than the target may result from premature truncation during translation or from proteolysis. If these smaller proteins include the fusion tag, they will copurify. Truncation may result from frameshift or ribosomal dissociation when translating through rare codons or through secondary structure in the transcript.
Before cloning, minimize the introduction of unfavorable secondary structures in the RNA by checking for potential hairpins at cloning junctions or where codon optimization or mutations are planned.
