163-2089-MSDS ReadyPrep™ Protein Extraction Kit English

Use the ReadyPrep Protein Extraction Kit (Cytoplasmic/Nuclear) to enrich for both cytoplasmic and nuclear proteins. The kit separates cytoplasmic proteins from intact nuclei and then solubilizes nuclei.

  • Employs a specially formulated buffer and differential centrifugation to isolate intact nuclei
  • Contains a strongly chaotropic extraction buffer to efficiently solubilize nuclear proteins
  • Includes the components of the ReadyPrep 2-D Cleanup Kit to remove extraction buffer that may interfere with IEF
  • Extracted proteins are suitable for IEF, SDS-PAGE, and western blotting

The ReadyPrep Protein Extraction Kit (Cytoplasmic/Nuclear) uses a buffer/differential centrifugation protocol to generate enriched cytoplasmic fractions and intact nuclei (Dignam et al. 1983, Zerivitz and Akusjarvi 1989). The nuclei are treated with a strongly chaotropic extraction buffer to efficiently solubilize the nuclear proteins. The cytoplasmic fraction is processed with the included ReadyPrep 2-D Cleanup Kit to remove IEF-inhibiting compounds.  Although this kit is directed towards the preparation of nuclear and cytoplasmic protein samples for 2-D gel electrophoresis, the fractions are suitable for SDS-PAGE, western blotting, and other applications.
