Purification

Expression system:    pET15b with N-terminal His6-tag , E. coli BL21(DE3)

Induction condition:  0. 2 mM IPTG, 16 °C, 20 h, 200 rpm, Luria LB broth

Purification

1) Suspend cells in ice-cold 40 mL Buffer-A + 10 glycerol

2) Disrupt cells by a CF1 cell disruptor (Constant Systems), 20 kPsi, 4 °C

3) Centrifuge at 12000 x g, 4 °C, 30 min

4) Load supernatant to a 10 mL gravity column filled with 2 mL Ni-NTA resin (pre-equilibrated)

5) Wash with 50 mL Buffer-A, then 50 mM Buffer-B, finally elute with 10 mL Buffer-C.

6) Concentrate into 2.5 mL and change buffer to Buffer D using a PD-10 column. 

7) Store at -20 °C for up to 6 months
