I do this all the time. If you have a simple band and can cut it from your gel using aseptic technique, you can do a SDS-PAGE, stain with MS-compatible stain (Imperial Stain from Pierce) cut your band of interest out, put in clean 1.5ml Epi tube. Then perform the typical in-gel digestion (simple, buy a kit, here's a protocol ---> [Only registered users see links. ]). Now you have trypsinized peptides ready for MALDI-TOF. Good hits on the MALDI and you will be able to identify your unknown protein.

If that doesn't satisfy you, perform the HPLC and IEC before MALDI-TOF.

Here is some info, in case you need to try the LC and IEC. #1 is the best for protein stuff, but they are all useful.

do you have any protocol for methanol extraction for microbe?i diluted my lyophilized sample using PBS but it didn't diluted well. i have a very limited sample. so i'm so thankful if you all have any suggestion. at the end i want to fractionate my sample and do antimicrobial test.

As I have visit this post and come to know that you have much knowledge of protein so that I want to ask you that can we take expired [Only registered users see links. ]? I mean if we take it than is there any side effect of this expired protein powder?

LOL, this is a food product (its been cooked/pasteurized, dried, etc), so like most you can use them after the expiration date. Go by smell & taste as those are the main reason why expiration dates are on there.

If you want some real expert opinion try asking bodybuilders, like here ---> http://forum.scoobysworkshop.com/
