Protein Purification Animation – his tag protein purification


Widely used quick procedure for producing
and purifying a protein involved the addition of a peptide tag to the protein of interest
in this procedure a segment of DNA encoding the protein of interest will be inserted into
a plasmid with a number of key features plasmid contains of replication origin which allows
the plasmid to replicate in a host E. coli cells it also contains a gene that confers
resistance to the Arab IRA Is someone allowing selection for cells that carry the plasmid
or multiple cloning site provides a number of sites for restriction enzymes to cut the
plasmid Williams on PDU to digests the plasmid for example it produces blood ends of the
DNA of the DNA with the protein coding region is also blended it can be migrated into this
plasmid in this example just upstream of the inserted DNA are three pieces that remain
from the multiple cloning site CAG code for the amino acid glutamine maxed six hits to
redeem code to call the peptide tag upstream are two more codons one of which is a translation
start site ATG which calls for methionine are brighter side is derived from the lack
of: control when the tag protein is expressed in the cell repressor proteins bind to go
creating an obstruction for RNA polymerase one inducer is added to the culture medium
the end-user binds to the repressor proteins and allows RNA polymerase to pass through
and transcribe the DNA into RNA another important region in the engineered plasmid is a ribosome
binding site ribosome binds to the RNA of this site before locating the first AUG start
codon and translating the RNA into protein ribosome continues translation until reaching
a stop codon when cells transformed with this plasmid reduced to express the tag protein
tag protein becomes bonded in the cell constituted up to 30% of the cellular protein with many
such cells growing in culture large amount of the tag protein can be produced the next
step is to harvest the cells break them open and prepare a crude cell extract a column
consisting of all those beads attached to little add-ons can separate the tag proteins
from the rest of the cellular material within the column history in tags of the proteins
have affinity for and bind to the nickel bearing all the beads are proteins that like the tags
do not stick to let go and can be washed out of the car verse the history intact proteins
are separated from the others by a process generally called affinity purification returned
protein is eluded from the column a low pH solution causes the history residues to become
protein needed and unable to bind to the neck or on the beads alternatively a solution with
a molecule called imidazole complete with his team for NATO binding in each case the
tag proteins are released from the car after the tag protein eludes from the column an
enzyme is added to remove the tag from the amino terminal end of the protein another
enzyme is added at the same time to modify the glutamine residue at the end of the tag
this modification prevents the digestive of the protein of interest the enzymes used in
the system have been engineered with his study in tags of the role the tags allow you enzymes
to be retained on a nickel-based, while a protein of interest washes through finally
another enzyme removes the modified glutamine amino acid this enzyme can be removed later
from the mixture by using its history in tag and the nickel-based, to separate the enzyme
from the protein of interest the steps involved in producing and purifying the protein of
interest can be completed relatively quickly in the period of a week

  1. What? How can histidine tagged enzymes be in the same column as the POI if they cleave the histidine tags from them? Wouldn't the POI get eluted out as soon as it is put into the column?

  2. how do we separate the modified glutamine and Met.Lys. with the protein, in case we only want that pure protein as a result? can someone help me please thank you so much

  3. Just subscribed, keep it goin. I'm trying to grow my YouTube channel too, it's hard but it's still fun. Peace!
