PRO-PREP™ Protein Extraction Solution can be simply extract protein from all kinds of cells and tissues. The kit contains 5 kinds of protease inhibitors so it is possible to extract very highly purified proteins. Usually detergent used in protein extraction consists of both hydrophobic tails and amphiphilic molecule and hydrophilic head. The two parts are joined to form a micelle. It is solubilized protein forming a lipid detergent mixed micelle and transmembrane protein forming a protein lipid detergent complex. The extent of micelle formation is termed as CMC(critical micelle concentration). Which is important for high efficiency as well as high purity of protein extraction. CMC is influenced by pH, temperature, ionic strength, multivalent ions of organic solvents, purity of detergent and so on. Depending on ionic characteristics, a detergent can be categorized as ionic detergent, non-ionic detergent, and Zwitterionic detergent.

Ionic detergent can be further classified into either cationic detergents. These are highly denaturant which have a specific property to isolate protein as a monomeric form and so often used in western blot analysis and measurement of molecular weight. Non ionic detergent such as Triton X-100 are less protein denaturant and often employed in protein interaction. Zwitterionic detergent such as CHAPS have both negative and positive charge head at the same time, more effective in protein-protein interaction than non ionic detergent and its extent of protein denaturation is less than that of ionic detergent. It is very important to select the optimal buffer and detergent for protein extraction.

Protein is isolated form variety kind of cell and tissues using PRO-PREP™ Protein Extraction Solution. Total protein volume is measured by PRO-MEASURE ™ Protein Measurement Solution. As a result, we got 2 mg protein form 5x106 cell and 8-9 mg protein is extracted form 10mg tissue.

TroubleShooting Guide
QIs there a simple protein extraction product?
APRO-PREP can extract proteins within 20 minutes with a kit that can extract proteins from various cells or tissues. In addition, it contains 5 types of commonly used protease inhibitors. There is no need to add protease inhibitor and there is no absorbance hindrance, so there is no error in protein quantification.
QSamples extracted with PRO-PREP are more sticky than RIPA buffer. Does this stickiness affect the results of the western blot experiment?
APRO-PREP is glycerol added so that it does not freeze even at -20 ° C to reduce degradation of protein samples during cold / thawing. Therefore, if the amount of the sample is large, stickiness may occur. Ionic detergent is used to make protein into monomeric form, and it is very useful for protein separation during Western blot analysis.
QWe are trying to extract membrane protein from mouse liver. Is it possible to extract small size proteins?
APRO-PREP is not only a small size protein in the membrane but also a nucleus and a cytosol protein. It is a kit that can extract proteins from various cells or tissues. Protein extraction is possible in 30 minutes without any additional procedure.
QAre there any products that can extract proteins from insects such as Drosophila? What is the extraction method?
APRO-PREP is a product designed to extract proteins from various cells and tissues. It is very easy to extract proteins. Add Drosophila into the whole tube and homogenize by adding 600ul of PRO-PREP. After that, proceed according to the protocol provided. The extracted protein can be stored at -20 ℃ for more than 6 months.
