For 300+ isolations using 6-well dishes, or 100 isolations using 10 cm dishes. This kit partitions and concentrates proteins in nuclei and cytosol in a 45 minute protocol using a microcentrifuge.

In addition to direct purchase from Fivephoton Biochemicals, this product can be purchased on and shipped directly from Fivephoton Biochemical to the customer; part number NC0797198. The Nuclear Protein Isolation Kit is also available from additional distributors of Fivephoton Biochemicals.

Simplicity: Allows for simultaneous isolations of multiple samples.
Scalability: Suitable for 300+ isolations/extractions based on a well in a 6-well dish, or 100 isolations/extractions using semi-confluent 10 cm dishes.
Versibility: Applicalbe for cells from virtually any mammalian species, or with tissues using an initial homogenization step.
Broad Downstream Applicability: Ideal for nuclei isolation, nuclei-cytosol fractionation, nuclear protein extraction, measurement of nuclear import, EMSA, transcription factor activation and translocation assays.
A key regulatory event in transcription factor activation is the translocation process from cytosol to nucleus. Proteins with exposed targeting signals interact with the nuclear pore import complex and enter into the nucleus to perform regulatory functions. The Nuclear Protein Isolation Kit provides a convenient method to isolate nuclear proteins, and detect and quantitate cytoplasmic to nuclear import.

Downstream applications for the nuclear protein isolation kit include, but are not limited to, quantitation of transcription factor activation, EMSA, cellular localization studies, nuclear protein isolation, and general investigative mechanisms of nuclear import.

Transmembrane proteins, and other polypeptides, with nuclear import signals may become proteolytically cleaved and translocate through the nuclear pore to bind chromosomal regulatory elements. The nuclear protein isolation protocol provided with this kit can be applied to identify and quantitate the nuclear import of the generated peptide fragments.
