ProteoPrep® Universal Extraction Kit, (PROT-TWO)

For the sequential isolation of separate soluble cytoplasmic & membrane protein fractions

This kit features new and innovative detergents, and uses specially formulated reagents and an optimized protocol designed to generate two prepared subcellular fractions that are uniquely ready for two-dimensional (2D) electrophoresis.

  • Fraction 1: Soluble/Cytoplasmic Proteins
  • Fraction 2: Membrane Proteins
The special reducing & alkylating reagents produce samples that exhibit improved focusing and decreased streaking in 2D gels. This kit provides reagents sufficient to process a minimum of ten samples, yielding two fractions each.
This kit is appropriate for use with various model organism sample sources used in proteomics research. (Superior results produced from E. coli extractions.) Improved solubility allows for higher protein loading capacities, resulting in improved visualization of low abundance proteins in 2D gels.


ProteoPrep® Universal Extraction Kit Protocol


Features & Benefits

  • Innovative detergent preparations - Highly improved solubility allows for higher protein loads and greater visibility of low abundance proteins on 2D gels.
  • Two pre-mixed solubilization solutions - Generates two distinct populations for easy 2D analysis.
  • Pre-measured reducing and alkylating reagents - Easy-to-use reagents provide improved IEF resolution.
  • Pre-weighed dry blends - Stable and easy to reconstitute.
  • Conveniently Packaged - No waste. Use only the amount needed.

Soluble Cytoplasmic Extraction Reagent
Soluble Protein Resuspension Reagent
Cellular & Organelle Membrane Solubilizing Reagent
Tributylphosphine Stock Solution
Alkylating Reagent, Iodoacetamide

ProteoPrep® Membrane Extraction Kit, (PROT-MEM)

For total extraction of membrane proteins

This kit features new and innovative detergents, and uses specially formulated reagents and an optimized protocol to generate one fraction containing membrane proteins that is uniquely ready for two-dimensional (2D) electrophoresis. The special reducing and alkylating reagents produce samples that exhibit improved focusing and decreased streaking in 2D gels.
This kit is appropriate for use with various model organism sample sources used in proteomics research. (Superior results produced from E. coli extractions.) Higher protein loading capacities and improved solubility, especially for difficult membrane bound proteins, provide excellent visualization of low abundance/low copy proteins.


ProteoPrep® Membrane Extraction Kit Protocol


Features & Benefits

  • Innovative detergent preparations - Improved solubility allows for higher protein loads and greater visibility of low abundance proteins in 2D gels.
  • Two pre-mixed solubilization solutions - Removes interfering non-membrane proteins prior to extraction, resulting in uncluttered 2D arrays.
  • Pre-measured reducing & alkylating reagents - Easy-to-use reagents provide improved IEF resolution.

ProteoPrep® Sample Extraction Kit, (PROT-TOT)

For testing or optimizing extraction conditions to produce total protein extracts

This kit provides four extraction reagents of increasing solubilizing power (reagents 1-4), each of which can generate total protein extracts from cellular samples. Along with conventional reagents, the kit also includes the newest generation of detergent reagents. This allows comparison of the protein extractions obtained with each of the four reagents and optimization to meet your individual needs. The reducing and alkylating reagents produce protein samples that exhibit improved focusing and decreased streaking in 2D gels. Enough of each component is provided to process a minimum of ten samples by each extraction reagent. For researchers who have optimized an extraction protocol using one chaotropic extraction reagent, each reagent is available as an individual product as well. (Superior results produced from E. coli extractions.)

ProteoPrep® Detergent Sampler Kit, (PROT-DT)

Customize & optimize your protein extraction using the most innovative detergents available.

Protein extraction is considered by many to be the most critical step of proteomic analysis; proteins to be studied must first be solublized. The ProteoPrep Detergent Sample pack contains 10 detergents, non-ionic and zwitterionic, for solubilization of membrane proteins. The variety of detergents enables testing and optimizing of extraction formulas, which vary with the protein of interest and cell type.

ProteoPrep® Reduction & Alkylation Kit, (PROT-RA)

The ProteoPrep Reduction and Alkylation Kit provides tributylphosphine (TBP) and iodoacetamide (IAA) for the reduction and alkylation of protein disulfide bonds. Procedures are provided for the reduction and alkylation of proteins in solution prior to loading the immobilized pH gradient (IPG) strip, during equilibration of the focused IPG strip prior to SDS-PAGE electrophoresis, or in-gel prior to tryptic digestion.

ProteoPrep® Protein Precipitation Kit, (PROT-PR)

The ProteoPrep Protein Precipitation Kit contains separate trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and sodium deoxycholate (DOC) reagents for the precipitation of proteins from aqueous samples. TCA is a classic reagent for precipitating proteins; however, it is not effective in quantitatively precipitating proteins below the 30 µg level. The use of TCA in combination with DOC allows for precipitation of as little as 3 µg of protein. The kit provides reagents sufficient to precipitate fifty 0.1 mL protein samples.


ProteoPrep® Protein Precipitation Kit Protocol


Features & Benefits

  • Fast - Precipitation in about 1 hour.
  • Convenient - All 3 reagents are provided as ready-to-use solutions.
  • Flexible - Resuspend pellet in the buffer of your choice to the protein concentration desired.
  • Compatible - Choice of resuspension buffer offers compatibility with a number of downstream processes such as SDS-PAGE, protein assay, IEF, tryptic digest etc.
  • Scalable - Procedures allow for precipitation to as little as 3 µg of protein.
