Adsorption behavior is compared on a traditional agarose-based ion-exchange resin and on two dextran-modified resins, using three proteins to examine the effect of protein size. The latter resins typically exhibit higher static capacities at low ionic strengths and electron microscopy provides direct visual evidence supporting the view that the higher static capacities are due to the larger available binding volume afforded by the dextran. However, isocratic retention experiments reveal that the larger proteins can be almost completely excluded from the dextran layer at high ionic strengths, potentially leading to significant losses in static capacity at relevant column loading conditions. Knowledge of resin and protein properties is used to estimate physical limits on the static capacities of the resins in order to provide a meaningful interpretation of the observed static capacities. Results of such estimates are consistent with the expectation that available surface area is limiting for traditional resins. In dextran-modified media, however, the volume of the dextran layer appears to limit adsorption when the protein charge is low relative to the resin charge, but the protein-resin electroneutrality may be limiting when the protein charge is relatively high. Such analyses may prove useful for semiquantitative prediction of maximum static capacities and selection of operating conditions when combined with protein transport information.


Improved and simplified liquid chromatography/atmospheric pressure chemical ionization mass spectrometry method for the analysis of underivatized free amino acids in various foods
Özcan Kabasakal, Süreyya (Elsevier BV, 2006-12-01)
An improved analytical method which offers rapid, accurate determination and identification of 22 amino acids in a variety of matrices, e.g. baby foods, juices, honey is reported. The amino acids were extracted from the matrixes using acidified water. Simultaneous determination of 22 underivatized amino acids was carried out by a liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC/MS). A narrow-bore column allowed rapid screening and quantitative analysis by positive LC/atmospheric pressure chemical ionization (APC...
Thin-film microextraction coupled to LC-ESI-MS/MS for determination of quaternary ammonium compounds in water samples
Boyacı, Ezel; Pawliszyn, Janusz (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2014-01-01)
The dual nature of the quaternary ammonium compounds, having permanently charged hydrophilic quaternary ammonium heads and long-chain hydrophobic tails, makes the sample preparation step and analysis of these compounds challenging. A high-throughput method based on thin-film solid-phase microextraction (SPME) and liquid chromatography mass spectrometry was developed for simultaneous quantitative analysis of nine benzylic and aliphatic quaternary ammonium compounds. Chromatographic separation and detection o...
Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy suggests unfolding of loop structures precedes complete unfolding of pig citrate synthase
Severcan, Feride; Haris, PI (Wiley, 2003-08-01)
Pig citrate synthase (PCS) can be used as a model enzyme to gain some insight into the structural basis of protein thermostability. The thermal unfolding characteristics of the specific secondary structure elements within PCS were monitored in detail by following changes in its amide I band components. The result of our study indicates that PCS undergoes irreversible thermal denaturation. Detailed analysis reveals that the different secondary structures display a multistep transition with a major and a mino...

A simple method for the two-dimensional analysis of proteins was developed based on direct extraction of a protein sample from dried/precipitated material into isoelectric focusing (IEF) gel solution. This sample solution is equally useful for sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and two-dimensional electrophoresis. For the former method this sample solution is applied directly to the gel. For the tatter, sample solution containing a desired amount of proteins is mixed with IEF ge...
Chemoselective Immobilization of Proteins by Microcontact Printing and Bio-orthogonal Click Reactions
Tolstyka, Zachary P.; Richardson, Wade; Bat, Erhan; Stevens, Caitlin J.; Parra, Dayanara P.; Dozier, Jonathan K.; Distefano, Mark D.; Dunn, Bruce; Maynard, Heather D. (Wiley, 2013-12-16)
Herein, a combination of microcontact printing of functionalized alkanethiols and site-specific modification of proteins is utilized to chemoselectively immobilize proteins onto gold surfaces, either by oxime- or copper-catalyzed alkyne-azide click chemistry. Two molecules capable of click reactions were synthesized, an aminooxy-functionalized alkanethiol and an azide-functionalized alkanethiol, and self-assembled monolayer (SAM) formation on gold was confirmed by IR spectroscopy. The alkanethiols were then...
