I've recently got my hands on an antibody to a small protein that's part
of an enormous complex (over 100 nm in diameter) and thought I might try
some IP to purify it. I've also got some Protein G-sepharose beads in
the fridge which I could use for IP. Can anyone offer protocols or point
me in the direction of some to help me out? I'll need to do this under
native conditions. I've done very little IP before, so any hints would
I recently succeeded in endogenous co-IP of some erythrocyte
membrane/peripheral proteins. the protocols and recipes in paper below may
provide you with beginning at least. as you know IP is trial and error with
different buffers/ detergents/ etc. However, you mention that you want to
purify?? this protein by IP? IMHO you may end up wasting a lot of time for
unusable amount of protein.

Many thanks AK. I s'pose 'enrich' would be a better word? The hope is to
do a bit of proteomic work and subunit relative abundance analysis on
it. Enough to run relative pure stuff on a gel would be handy. I had a
little play with the Protein G-sepharsoe I found but ended up with
bucket loads of what I assume is Protein G on my gels. I also think it's
a little too old for successful IP, so I'm getting a new batch!
