General description

This new Lipid detergent may be used for crystallizing membrane proteins by using lipidic mesophases. This method has variously been referred to as the lipidic cubic phase or in meso method. The method has been shown to be quite versatile in that it has been used to solve X-ray crystallographic structures of prokaryotic and eukaryotic proteins, proteins that are monomeric, homo- and hetero-multimeric, chromophore-containing and chromophore-free, and alpha-helical and beta-barrel proteins.


7.9 MAG is suitable for use as a hosting lipid for titration to avoid lamellar crystal phase (Lc) formation during sample injection It is also suitable for use in mesocrystallization.

Biochem/physiol Actions

7.9 MAG is a non-monoolein lipid. It can support crystallization of bacteriorhodopsin, an integral membrane protein.
