What kinds of detergent-free bacterial lysis buffers exist? The proteins we're extracting will be later analyzed by LC-MS/MS, and we're looking for a lysis buffer that won't interfere with this ...
I've done O- and N- linked enzymatic deglycosylation of purified and lyophilized proteins. Following some modifications to the manufacture's protocol, I had great results. I now want a student to ...
I'm working on building some FRET reporters. In addition to a cleavage site (of varying composition from 15-18AA), a 1 AA linker, I'm using Venus and Cerulean. Initially I was worried that 18AA ...
Is there a practical way to detect whether or not a baked good has egg in it? I'm thinking of something that can be brushed on to evolve a color change. Any help is appreciated.
Typically we determine the concentration of proteins using a 280 nm reading. However, it is reasonable to use 205 nm. I was curious about the effectiveness of this method.
I had never heard the term before today. From what I can tell, it's using antibodies to purify a cell population of interest. I would appreciate more details, especially in how it differs from ...
I've used HPLC (high performance liquid chromatography) before (once, so I'm barely even qualified to know what it stands for) so I was surprised when my labmate told me she would be using an ...
