Applications of Protein Purification

- Protein purification has a variety of applications in drug delivery, tissue engineering, and biointerface science. Elastin-like polypeptides can undergo protein purification so that a single type of protein can be isolated from a complex mixture. Because of the increased demands of peptide-based biomaterials for drug delivery and tissue engineering, efficient protein purification techniques must be used. Four techniques that will be discussed in this report are: Affinity chromatography, Centrifugation-based Inverse Transition Cycling (ITC), Microfiltration-based Inverse Transition Cycling, and finally protein purification by self-cleaving purification tags....   [tags: Protein purification, medical, ]
