Organelle Isolation

A fundamental of cell biology is the biogenesis and maintenance of intracellular organelles. Eukaroytic cells are organized by segregating essential cellular functions into discrete compartments composed of proteins and lipids. Establishing and maintaining order requires mechanisms to synthesize and localize proteins to specific organelles, and monitor and regulate individual organelles. Targeted proteomics profiling can be partnered with protein pathway function by enriching for organelles and analyzing their contents. These kits and reagents enable researchers to enrich for functional mitochondria, chloroplasts and more with companion kits to determine organelle integrity.
