ProPlex™ is formulated for the crystallization of protein complexes.
Developed and tested by Sergei Radaev et al1,2 at the NIH National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
The kit contains a 96 condition, targeted sparse matrix screen.
Features of ProPlex™:
- Targeted sparse matrix screen.
- Based on results of Protein Complex Crystallization Database.
- Satisfies dual requirements: – Maintain protein-protein interactions. – Reduce solubility of complex.
- Medium and High MW PEGs.
- Lower PEG concentrations.
- Fewer organic precipitants.
- Neutralised organic acids.
- pH range from 4.0 – 8.5.
