In the last issue, the editor brought you “Dry Goods | Using IP “Hook” Fishing, Protein Club “Wishers Take the Bite””, and the response was very enthusiastic. In the voice of everyone, the editor is rushing through the previous experimental notes, bringing you the second bullet of protein interaction knowledge-Pull-Down. If the protein interaction is compared to an interesting “fishing” activity, then the Purekine filler we use is a tough and slender “fishing rod” and “fishing line”. The known GST-labeled recombinant protein is sharp The strong “fish hook” and “fish bait” are the perfect combination, and our target protein is the “fish” that moves freely in the water.
The concept of Pull-Down is similar to Co-IP, and its purpose is to study proteins or ligands that bind to known bait proteins. Pull-Down aims to prove the interaction between two proteins or explore unknown proteins or molecules that can bind to the target protein. Pull-Down is different from IP or Co-IP in that it is not based on antibody-antigen interaction, not an immune response. The bait protein (or ligand) is immobilized on a solid support through a non-antibody affinity system. This immobilization can be covalently coupled to the activated microbeads, or through the receptor molecule on the support The bound affinity tag binds and thus immobilizes. For example, immobilized metal chelating affinity chromatography (IMAC) resin can be used to pull-down histidine tag bait protein. The optimization of Pull-Down needs to consider the special nature of the affinity system used. Principle of Pull-Down According to the following diagram, you can understand the principle of Pull-Down:
Comparison of Pull-Down and protein purification experiments:
- Use recombinant gene expression protein, and then perform downstream protein extraction and purification experiments；
- Analysis of the similarities and differences between the two experimental procedures；

The Purkine series of protein purification tools provided by Abbkine are multifunctional and suitable for a variety of protein experiments. When your target protein is a recombinant protein, the purification medium can be used for the extraction of recombinant protein, which is a protein purification experiment; when your target protein is a prey protein that interacts with the recombinant protein, this series of products can be used for prey Extraction and purification.
This issue mainly talks about the knowledge of Pull-Down, time is limited, I have to say goodbye to everyone. At the same time in the next issue, we will have exciting content to meet you all. Stay tuned~~~~~
