Maltose is coupled with Separopore® 4B. Maltose Separopore® 4B provides a convenient affinity purification of recombinant proteins tagged with maltose-binding protein (MBP). Maltose Separopore® 4B has high binding capacity for MBP-tagged proteins. Purification is performed under physiological conditions and the mild elution preserves the activity of the target protein. Due to the high specificity of the binding, very high purity of the eluted protein is achieved in just one step. Maltose-Separopore® 4B is used in protein chromatography, affinity chromatography and carbohydrate matrices. Maltose-Separopore® 4B has been used to study surfactant protein D (SP-D), which plays an important role in innate immunity. Maltose-Separopore® 4B has also been used to study numerous pathological mechanisms for diseases in the human lung, including Aspergillus fumigatus, a pathogenic fungus, and the human influenza A virus.
Note: Separopore® is a cost-effective equivalent to Sepharose® in all of its physical properties and binding characteristics.
