Last class

Protein structure

How do proteins fold

Importance of structure


Working with proteins

Interested in studying Hexokinase

  • How many proteins in cell?

  • First step in studying Hexokinase?

  • How do you know when you have purified Hexokinase?


Estimating purity

First step – how do we know our protein is present?

  • How do we know how pure our protein is?


Estimating purity

Assume 100 proteins in cell. 1g of each protein.

  • Total protein? Ratio of our protein?

  • Purify: Get rid of 50 unwanted proteins.

  • Total protein? Ratio of our protein?

  • Purify: Get rid of 40 remaining unwanted proteins.

  • Total protein? Ratio of our protein?

  • Purify: Get rid of 8 remaining unwanted proteins.

  • Total protein? Ratio of our protein?

  • Ratio of activity of protein:Total protein = Specific activity



Purifying proteins

1st step = Getting protein!

  • Lyse

  • “Fractionate”



Purifying proteins

What properties of proteins can you exploit?

  • Solubility

  • Size

  • Charge

  • Affinity/Specificity


Changing protein solubility – Salting in/out
