163-2084-MSDS ReadyPrep™ Protein Extraction Kit-Membrane II English

The ReadyPrep Protein Extraction Kit (Membrane II) is optimized for the isolation of proteins containing more than two transmembrane domains and proteins that are resistant to extraction by the ReadyPrep Membrane I Kit.

  • Isolates complex proteins with 3 or more transmembrane domains and those resistant to extraction by the ReadyPrep™ Protein Extraction (Membrane I) Kit
  • Useful for a wide variety of biological samples, including animal tissue, animal cells, plant tissue, yeast, and bacteria
  • Requires ultracentrifugation; entire procedure can be completed in less than 3 hours
  • Includes a strongly chaotropic, IEF-compatible rehydration/sample buffer that contains the detergent ASB-14 to efficiently solubilize proteins

The ReadyPrep Protein Extraction Kit (Membrane II) is based on the method of Fujiki et al. (1982) for the isolation of cellular membrane fractions after carbonate extraction, and the later adaption of the technique by Molloy et al. (2000). Incubation of tissue or cells with the high-pH Membrane Protein Concentrating Reagent strips weakly associated proteins away from membrane fragments. After ultracentrifugation and washing, the membrane pellet is solubilized using an IEF buffer or other buffer. The included 2-D Rehydration/Sample Buffer 1 contains the zwitterionic detergent ASB-14. The kit also contains the reducing agent tributylphosphine (TBP), which is more efficient than dithiothreitol (DTT) for keeping proteins reduced in 2-D PAGE applications.

Kit Components
