General description

Ammonium sulfate is commonly used in agriculture as a nitrogen fertilizer. In aqueous solution, it dissociates to form ammonium and sulfate ions.

Packaging

1 kg in poly bottle
100, 500 g in poly bottle
5 kg in poly drum

Application

Ammonium sulfate has been used in the preparation of ′Blue Silver′ colloidal Coomassie stain for proteins.
Ammonium sulfate may be used for the precipitation or fractionation of proteins or for purification of antibodies. It is also useful for crystallographic analysis of nucleic acids and proteins.

A protocol for selective and site-specific enzymatic labeling of proteins is described. The method exploits the protein co-/post-translational modification known as myristoylation, the transfer of myristic acid (a 14-carbon saturated fatty acid) to an N-terminal glycine catalyzed by the enzyme...

MshB, a zinc-based deacetylase, catalyses a step in the mycothiol biosynthetic pathway that involves the deacetylation of 1-O-(2-acetamido-2-deoxy-α-D-glucopyranosyl)-D-myo-inositol (GlcNAc-Ins), via cleavage of an amide bond, to 1-O-(2-amino-2-deoxy-α-D-glucopyranosyl)-D-myo-inositol (GlcN-Ins) and acetate. In this study, MshB was expressed, purified and crystallized. A...
