General description

Glutathione Magnetic Agarose Beads consist of a paramagnetic 4% beaded agarose. Glutathione is covalently attached through the sulfur to epoxy-activated agarose resulting in a 12 atom (10 carbon) spacer.

The Glutathione Magnetic Agarose Beads are useful for affinity capture, molecular pull-down, or immunoprecipitation (IP) of proteins containing glutathione binding sequences, such as native glutathione S-transferase (GST), glutathione peroxidase, and glyoxalase I, or GST-tagged recombinant fusion proteins from cell lysates or other biochemical solutions while exhibiting low non-specific binding of other proteins. Recombinant GST-tagged proteins, bound to the affinity resin are separated with the use of a magnet. The magnetic properties allow for very rapid processing, as well as aid in manipulations, such as repetitive washings and recovery of the desired protein. This leads to faster recovery, experimental reproducibility, and more accurate quantitation of the proteins of interest.

The matrix of the magnetic beads is a 4% beaded agarose with an average diameter of 50 μ and a diameter range of 20-75 μ. Paramagnetic iron is impregnated within the beads.


Useful for affinity capture, molecular pull-down, or immunoprecipitation (IP) of proteins containing glutathione binding sequences, such as recombinant GST-tagged fusion proteins or native glutathione S-transferase, glutathione peroxidase and glyoxalase I from cell lysates and other biological samples. Can be used for purification in single tubes or for high throughput in 96-well multiwell plates. The magnetic properties of the beads aid in manipulations, such as repetitive washings and recovery of the protein. This leads to greater experimental reproducibility and more accurate quantitation of the proteins of interest.

Rationale: Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) almost invariably gain invasive phenotype with limited therapeutic strategy and ill-defined mechanism. By studying the aberrant expression landscape of gliomas, we find significant up-regulation of p-MAPK level in GBM and a potent independent prognostic marker for...

Centromere protein A (CENP-A) is a histone H3 variant that defines centromeric chromatin and is essential for centromere function. In most eukaryotes, CENP-A-containing chromatin is epigenetically maintained, and centromere identity is inherited from one cell cycle to the next. In...

Alternative splicing is a critical process to generate protein diversity. However, whether and how alternative splicing regulates autophagy remains largely elusive. Here we systematically identify the splicing factor SRSF1 as an autophagy suppressor. Specifically, SRSF1 inhibits autophagosome formation by reducing...
