Purification of Proteins

  • Purification was achieved by running the collected filtrate through an affinity chromatography that is attached to a Fast Protein Liquid Chromatography (FPLC). The affinity utilized is the affinity of the His tags to nickel.
  • The initial step is to equilibriate the system by adding 50 mL of the clear, colorless binding buffer to the superloop using a syringe. Flowpath was at the generic position Load.
  • The end of pump A was inserted to the bottle solution of binding buffer; pump B was inserted into the bottle of the elution buffer. The pump was set at pump wash basic.
  • In consecutive order, the column was flushed with 25 mL of the binding buffer, 25 mL of elution buffer, and another 25 mL of binding buffer.
  • The flowpath was switched to position 3 after the run through of buffers. The pump flow was at 0.15 MPa and the flowrate was set to 5 mL/min.
  • From the readings, the detection indicates that the absorbance is at 280; indicative of the presence of Histidine. However, the absorbance at 280 is not exclusive to Histidine alone but also corresponds to Tryptophan, Tyrosine, and Phenylalanine.
  • The conductivity reading is sensitive to the amount of salt in the buffer.
  • On the dialog box, pump > gradient > B > 100%.
  • Once the peak levels back to baseline, pump > gradient > B > 0%. This washes the system with A.
  • At Flowpath > injection valve > position > inject. Switch to position 1. This bypasses the column with the superloop's binding buffer flow at at 10 mL/min on inject. Then press end.
  • Sample 1 was loaded onto the super loop with the syringe at inject. The position was switched at position 3. The flow rate was at 5 mL/min with the gradient of B at 0%. From inject, the setting was switch to load.
  • The desired baseline should reach an absorbance of 280 and 250. Then hit pause.

Preparation of Au/BSA solution

  • The nanoparticles were synthesized from 15 μM BSA with 2 mL of .0336 M Au diluted down to 10 mL of water.
  • The solutions were prepared with the same standard mole ratios as before.
  • Then, the solutions were placed to the thermo scientific for 4 h. at 80°C.
