DEAE-Cellulose-Urea Chromatography of Casein in the Presence of 2-Mercaptoethanol

Notes

  • Notes that kappa-casein looses disulfide bones if it is in the presence of BME.
    • This may be important since I use BME in my antifade.
  • Shows that kappa-casein can be purified by using a DEAE-Cellulose-Urea column.
  • Notes that kappa-casein cannot be purified with the then technology of starch-gel electrophoresis.
    • I believe we have techniques to do this that are decent since we can buy kappa-casein from Sigma at a 70% purity.
  • kappa-casein has a higher affinity for beta-casein than it does for alphas1-casein.
  • They do say that the casein they studied came from cows.
