A Practical Guide to Membrane Protein Purification is written especially for researchers who have some familarity with separation of water-soluble proteins, but who may not be aware of the pitfalls they face with membrane proteins. This guide presents techniques in a concise form, emphasizing the aspects unique to membrane proteins. The book explains the principles of the methods, permitting researchers and students new to this area to adapt these techniques to their particular needs. The second volume in the series, this book is an essential manual for investigations of structure and function of native membrane proteins, as well as for purification of these proteins for immunization and protein sequencing. Separation, Detection, and Characterization of Biological Macromolecules is a new series of laboratory guides. Each volume focuses on a topic of central interest to scientists and students in biomedical and biological research. Introductory chapters are followed by clear, step-by-step protocols that present principles and practice. These concise manuals are designed for optimal understanding of methods as well as for practical benchtop use. Provides general guidelines and strategies for isolation of membrane proteins Describes detailed practical procedures that have been the widest applications, and lowest specialized equipment needs Gives special emphasis to new native and denaturing electrophoresis techniques Explains modifications of techniques used for water-soluble proteins

ß-barrel outer membrane channel proteins (OMP) are useful as robust and flexible models or components in nanotechnology. Over the last decade biotechnological techniques allowed to expand the natural characteristics of OMPs by modifying their geometry and properties. The present book is oriented towards a broad group of readers including graduate students and advanced researchers. It gives a general introduction to the field of OMP based nano-component development as well as the state of the art of the involved research. On the example of the E. coli FhuA the transformation of an OMP into a tailored nano-channel will be outlined. An exhaustive description of the scientific strategy, including protein selection, analytical methods and “in-silico” tools to support the planning of protein modifications for a targeted application, consideration on the production of a custom made OMP, and an overview on technological applications including membrane/polymersome technology, will be provided.

The authors present a comprehensive collection of readily reproducible techniques for the manipulation of recombinant plasmids using the bacterial host E. coli. The authors describe proven methods for cloning DNA into plasmid vectors, transforming plasmids into E. coli, and analyzing recombinant clones. They also include protocols for the construction and screening of libraries, as well as specific techniques for specialized cloning vehicles, such as cosmids, bacterial artificial chromosomes, 1 vectors, and phagemids. Common downstream applications such as mutagenesis of plasmids and the use of reporter genes, are also described.

Techniques in Protein Chemistry IV compiles papers presented at the Sixth Protein Society Symposium held in San Diego, California in 1992. This book discusses the mass spectrometry in protein sequence and structural investigations; site specific heterogeneity of N-linked oligosaccharides on recombinant human erythropoietin; and modification of thiophosphorylated proteins with extrinsic probes. The cysteine and tryptophan amino acid analysis of ABRF92-AAA; development of separation strategies for proteins by capillary electrophoresis; and peptide mapping of 2-D gel proteins by capillary HPLC are also elaborated. This text likewise covers the single syringe-pump solid-phase protein sequencer; hydrophobic contact density distribution functions; and application of chemical shift calculation to protein structure determination by NMR. This publication is valuable to biologists and students concerned with the developments in mass spectrometry of proteins.
