Magnetic Resin His Tagged

His-tags have been widely employed as a powerful separation approach in the purification of a broad range of proteins and peptides. It is based on the specific interactions between certain transitional metal ions, mostly Cu2+, Ni2+, Zn2+ and Co2+ to the exposed amino acid surface chains containing histidine. The presence of several adjacent histidines such as (His)6-tag increases the affinity to immobilised metal ions. Increasingly, Amintra Ni-NTA and Ni-IDA resins are employed for the purification of histidine-tagged recombinant proteins expressed in bacteria, yeast and mammalian cells.

Amintra Nickel Magnetic resin is typically useful in purifying small quantity low concentration histidine-tagged proteins. For example, when 10 – 50 µl of resin is required for protein purification, it is difficult to handle such small quantities in columns. Amintra Nickel Magnetic resins can be easily processed with the aid of a magnet. The liquid / solid separation required in each purification step (e.g. equilibration, binding, washing and elution) is readily achieved with the aid of a magnet (e.g. magnetic stirring bar or other commercial magnetic devices).
Key benefits:
  • Tailored base matrix design for batch magnetic purification of proteins
  • High binding capacity (could be over 40 mg/ml)
  • Simple and convenient operation, no chromatography training required
  • Flexible operational conditions
  • Low cost
