Extraction and purification of membrane proteins

Ni-NTA resin
Anatrace's Super Nickel Resin (Cat.-N° SUPER-NINTA25 & SUPER-NINTA100) is their gold standard for His-tag protein purification. It has the highest tolerance for reducing agents such as DTT (up to 10 mM) or 2-ME (up to 20 mM) and has a superior stability to EDTA (up to 1.5 mM).

This synthetic substitute for Digitonin eliminates batch-to-batch variabilty. In addition, GDN does not not contain the harmful toxic byproducts typically found in Digitonin.

The removal of membrane proteins with detergents can change protein structure and interfere with function, stability and, of course, correct structural analysis. Diisobutylene Maleic Acid (DIBMA) is  a detergent-free polymer system designed to stabilize membrane proteins and avoid the disadvantages of detergents.
