The 50 mM malonate buffer was used to dissolve the pellets and it was dialyzed against the same buffer after sealing securely in a dialysis bag to remove extra salt and the dialyzate was finally freeze dried.
At selected time intervals, 2 mL dialyzate was taken out from the reservoir and equal volume of fresh PBS buffer was replenished to it.
