Lower molecular weight products of hydrolysis were formed, but they escaped detection by the Coomassie Brilliant Blue staining method.
Approximately 700 protein spots were detected on the coomassie stained gels and most of them were appeared in the pH range between 5 to 9 and molecular weight between 20 to 100 kDa.
A sample from the fractions containing IF obtained after purification on protein G was subjected to SDSPAGE, and the protein bands were visualized by Coomassie staining.
These experiments involved protein staining (silver or Coomassie blue) and demonstrated that loss was not specific to any protein species (35).
Further these colonies were stained with Coomassie Brilliant Blue stain and observed under bright filed microscope for the presence of crystalline inclusions.
Before being dried and exposed to autoradiography, the polyacrylamide gels were stained with Coomassie Brilliant Blue to determine that equal amounts of fusion proteins were used in each reaction.
The proteins resolved by electrophoresis were stained with Coomassie brilliant blue (Biorad) and were exposed to X-ray film (XOMAT AR, Eastman Kodak) for 24 h.
Staining of protein bands carried out by Coomassie Brilliant Blue R250 and bands size were assessed by protein marker (Thermo scientific).
