Removing MBP tag

... And I cannot perform the digestion with the crude extract because of the mass of other proteins. So for me it's the best way to make it onto the amylose resin column. And it would work out but the cut part of the protein remained stuck to the uncut fusion protein very strongly. Ion exchange would ...

Removing MBP tag

... at 4 °C Issues: 1) Only half of MBP-Fusionprotein is cut by PreScission. 2) Ignoring the incomplete proteolysis I performed the reaction onto the amylose resin column. In theory the cut protein has to be found in the flow-through whereas MBP and remaining MBP-Fusionprotein are still bound to the ...

Diff b/w: monosaccharide, oligosaccharide, polysaccharide?

I thought I'd just post this question here since it has to do with carbs anyway... How does the structure of amylose determine it's function in biology? I know it's not linear, and globular. How does the structure of amylopectin determine it's function in biology? I know it's ...

Enzymes

... It hydrolyses any bond. Amylase hydrolyse glycosidic bond in carbs, pepsin hydrolyses peptide bond in polypeptides. Look to the wiki page for Amylose http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amylase#Classification here you can see, that there are several kinds of them differing in substrate specificity. ...

Re: Enzymes

... the other hand, amylase (enzyme (everything ending in English with -ase is enzyme; everything ending with -ose is sugar/saccharide;)) breaks down amylose (see, polysaccharide) to smaler units like oligosaccharides and monosaccharides. Ha this is like trying to grab smoke with my hands at the moment. ...
