iST TurboGFP-Trap Kit

Description

Kit for IP/ Co-IP of TurboGFP-tagged proteins & sample preparation for mass spectrometry (MS)

Specificity
TurboGFP; for more details see fluorescent protein specificity table

Applications
Identification of TurboGFP-tagged proteins & interacting partners by MS
Interactome studies
Superior processing of IP samples into clean peptide mixtures
Intuitive protocol for reproducible results

Details
The iST TurboGFP-Trap Kit enables researchers to process TurboGFP-fusion proteins and their interacting partners for Mass Spectrometry analysis by including the ChromoTek TurboGFP-Trap for immunoprecipitation/Co-IP of TurboGFP-fusion proteins and the PreOmics iST buffers and cartridges required for bottom-up proteomic sample preparation. This robust method yields purified peptides while dramatically reducing contamination and sample loss. Each kit accommodates up to eight samples and includes pull-down reagent for controls.

How can I avoid unspecific protein interactions binding to the trap?

For preclearing of your sample we recommend to use our binding controls (bab-20 or bmab-20).

Please find more information in our Troubleshooting guide

How many mammalian cells are required for an immunoprecipitation reaction?

For one immunoprecipitation reaction, we recommend using ~10^6 - 10^7 mammalian cells. The yield is also dependent on the expression level of your protein of interest and the interaction partners.

How much cell extract should I use for an immunoprecipitation reaction?

For other type of cells than mammalian cells, we recommend using 0.5 - 1.0 mg of cell extract.

Do I need to elute bound proteins from the beads for mass spectrometry analysis?

No, you can directly conduct an on-bead digestion after immunoprecipitation. This procedure allows faster and more efficient sample preparation and a potential higher yield.

Protocol on-bead digestion

What is the amount of trap slurry I need for one immunoprecipitation reaction?

25 µL slurry are sufficient for one pull-down reaction as the affinity of the traps is very high.

Should I use an N-terminal or C-terminal fusion tag?

Both the N-terminal or C-terminal fusion tag work well with the TurboGFP-Trap.

IP / Co-IP of TurboGFP fusion proteins & sample preparation for MS

  • Reliable dentification of TurboGFP-fusion proteins & interacting partners by MS
  • Identification of even low abundant/ low expressed TurboGFP-fusion proteins
  • Superior processing of IP samples into clean peptide mixtures
  • Intuitive protocol and reproducible results

TurboGFP-Trap Agarose

The ChromoTek TurboGFP-Trap is a Nanobody or VHH coupled to a matrix for immunoprecipitation of TurboGFP-fusion proteins & their interacting partners.

  • Fast and efficient one-step IP
  • Low background

iST Technology

The PreOmics iST technology provides a complete solution for proteomic sample preparation.

  • Developed at the laboratory of Matthias Mann, MPI for Biochemistry
  • Streamlined workflow directly compatible with MS analysis
  • Avoids MS downtime through clean peptide samples

Technology
MS-based proteomics typically employs multiple sample preparation steps that can lead to sample contamination and loss. The PreOmics iST technology overcomes these problems and has been published in Nature Methods (Kulak et al., 2014): “Minimal, encapsulated proteomic-sample processing applied to copy-number estimation in eukaryotic cells” (doi:10.1038/nmeth.2834).

The PreOmics iST technology includes all chemicals, enzymes, cartridges and plasticware required for denaturation, reduction, and alkylation of co-immunoprecipitated proteins plus in-solution digestion and peptide clean-up. Optimized and patented peptide washing procedures eliminate both hydrophobic and hydrophilic contaminants. This results in clean peptides, decreasing MS downtime, and providing reproducible and reliable results. For more information see www.preomics.com.
