Transmembrane Protein Extraction

The FIVEphoton Biochemicals Transmembrane Protein Extraction Reagent (tmPER-200TM) is a cell lysis-protein extraction buffer with proprietary ingredients that assist in the extraction and isolation of high molecular weight multiple-membrane spanning proteins that are otherwise poorly resolvable in standard cell lysis buffers due to aggregation tendency, lipid raft association or other insolubility issues. The Transmembrane Protein Extraction Reagent is designed to extract proteins with 4 or more transmembrane domains, yet will also effectively resolve less complex transmembrane proteins. Examples for the applicability of the FIVEphoton Biochemicals Transmembrane Protein Extraction Reagent are for enhanced resolution of ABC transporters, Ion Channels, Ion Exchangers and GPCRs in the downstream application of Western blotting. The Transmembrane Protein Extraction Reagent is applicable when RIPA buffer fails to extract and solubilize due to high molecular weight and aggregation tendency.

Transmembrane Protein Extraction Reagent: General Protocol

The researcher first employs techniques described in the protocol manual to limit endocytosis and lysosomal targeting that can otherwise result in proteolytic cleavage of cytoplasmic domains of multi-membrane spanning proteins. In the second step, the Transmembrane Protein Extraction Reagent, with added protease inhibitors, is added to dislodge cells from the cell culture dish and to dissolve the cell membrane. Following membrane dissolution, brief centrifugation is used to remove cellular debris from a supernatant fraction that contains extracted transmembrane proteins. The supernatant is added to Laemmli Sample Buffer, which is heated, but not boiled, prior to the resolution in SDS-PAGE gels. For Western blots, transfer takes place in a transfer buffer that has added SDS and reduced amounts of methanol. The transfer is allowed to proceed approximately 25% longer than typically used in Western blotting protocols.
Suitable for 300 10 cm cell culture dishes of confluent cells. Volumes are scalable to other sized culture dishes based on the surface area of the dish (Provided volume: 100 ml)
