Product Description

BioChain’s Total Protein Extraction Kit is designed for rapid and efficient isolation of total protein lysates from virtually any tissue or cell sample. The system utilizes our proprietary buffer that has been optimized to prepare the highest quality total protein extractions. The kit also includes our proprietary protease inhibitor cocktail to prevent protein degradation. In conjunction, these two components result in protein extracts that are native and may be used for downstream applications such as SDS-PAGE, isoelectric focusing and 2-D gel electrophoresis, Western blotting, tissue-specific protein expression analysis, immunoprecipitation, protein-protein interaction studies, gel mobility shift analysis, DNA-protein interaction studies, antibody production, and enzymatic activity assays.

High Quality Total Protein Tissue Lysates

Using BioChain’s Total Protein Extraction Kit results in high-quality proteins that show an absence of smearing on an SDS-PAGE gel; extraction of total proteins is also demonstrated by the range in size from 10 kd to greater than 200 kd (Figure 1).


Figure 1. 50 μg of total proteins resolved on a 4-20% gradient SDS-PAGE gel (top) and expression of GAPDH* was verified using a Western blot (bottom). Total proteins were isolated from 16 different human tissues using the Total Protein Extraction kit as follows:

Lane 1: Placenta                  Lane 2: Testis                  

Lane 3: Prostate              Lane 4: Uterus

Lane 5: Rectum                  Lane 6: Colon                    

Lane 7: Small Intestine    Lane 8: Stomach

Lane 9: Skeletal Muscle     Lane 10: Spleen                 

Lane11: Pancreas            Lane 12: Lung

Lane 13: Liver                     Lane14: Kidney                 

Lane15: Brain                   Lane 16: Heart
