Beta Casine

Postby gould2 » Tue May 29, 2012 4:16 pm

Hi,
I would like acqueous solution of beta casine just purchased by Sigma.
I am a physicist and I cannot handle properly biological elements.
Can someone help in preparation?
can I diluted it in water? or I need a specific solvent?
what precaution do I have to pay attention?

Thank you, G.

you mean casein, right?
water could work, but some buffer would be probably better for storage

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

Hello Jack, thank you for your reply.
Yes I mean beta casein...sorry.
I could make diluitions with DI-water (milli Q from clean room) or I have a Phosphate Buffer Solution (PBS) available.
I noted that the casein box is very little...how much quantity can I take to make the mother solution?
Then I don't know if casein is supplied in liquid or powder...

Cheers, G

I would bet on powder since that is more stable.
But your provider should give you all the info about status and solubility of the chemical.
